    Not sure if this is the right forum, but...

    My yard is infested with mosquitoes. I can't walk outside without instantly getting four on my arm, and grilling out is out of the question. Working in the yard is torture, and I HATE itching! So I looked into repellants and found this:
    http://www.saferbrand.com/store/insect-control/DT336

    Thought it might be worth a try, but I was wondering if anyone had any information on this product as to its effect on bees. I called the company, and they "did not think" it would harm them. One of the main ingredients is Lemon grass oil, so it may even attract them???

    Any opinions on this product, or suggestions as to something else that might work are welcome.
