Full strength what?

A lot of scientific tests have been done about mosquito repellents, and the long-time and still champion is DEET. Some other chemicals work well enough to consider. None of the folk remedies, including citronella work well enough to be practical.

There's another problem with dryer sheets. The perfumes they put in them attract stinging insects like bees and wasps. I don't want to get stung by a wasp even if it does keep mosquitoes away!
