An effective mosquito repellent includes vinegar and catnip. Crush the leaves of 2 cups of catnip and combine with 3 cups of rice vinegar or white vinegar into a quart mason jar. Close the jar with a lid and store in a dark cabinet for two weeks. Shake the mixture every day. At the end of two weeks, strain the spray into a squirt bottle and refrigerate. Use on clothing and skin to keep the bugs away.
