One proven, natural way to deter mosquitoes from a designated outdoor area is by lighting citronella candles. Citronella oil gives off a lemony scent that keeps these flying pests at bay.
A stand alone candle or two is effective to cover a small area, but if you’re looking to entertain a larger group of people outdoors, positioning citronella torches around the perimeter of your patio, deck or yard adds a festive feel while expanding mosquito free coverage. Tiki torches are more decorative options and many can burn citronella oil as well.
Warding off mosquitoes doesn’t always require the use of bug spray. Citronella candles and torches can accomplish the same job while keeping the outdoors smelling fresh. For information, check out our guide on insect control.
