what do y'all use for mosquito repellant?

Pam, the mosquitos love you because you are so sweet!  I don't use anything 
because they hate me.  I have watched them land on my arm, walk around, then 
fly away.  My theory is I was "bled out" at an early age when my father raised 
rice.  If you all are unfamiliar with them, the mosquitos in rice fields are 
big, black, fuzzy and have muscles!  You can make a decoction with Pennyroyal 
and use is in a spray bottle.  It smells good and makes a effective repellant, 
but it should never be used by pregnant women.
