Do citronella candles work?

Citronella Candles

Citronella candles and smoking coils can be effective in repelling mosquitoes. In order to benefit from the protection they provide, however, you have to stay in the mosquito repellant smoky-plume they produce. Keep in mind that the smoking coils contain pesticides which you will be breathing in as well. In addition, the smoke coverage created by the coils and candles is likely to be uneven, so some mosquitoes might get through anyway.
