I've been smoking cigars and coding out in my backyard lately, I just recently moved from the beach to a half an hour inland and the mosquitoes are eating me alive at dusk.

I went on to Amazon to try to find something cheap and efficient and I decided to go with citronella incense sticks to try to keep the mosquitoes at bay.

The recommended usage is to make a 12'x12' square and putting one stick in each corner of the square and sitting in the middle of it. That seems like a bit of a waste so I am trying just one stick within a few feet.

You have to stick the incense in a sand bucket or something so it can burn down but not tip over from wind and start a fire.

For $11 (with prime) it comes with 12 sticks.
