Dryer sheets may be great for reducing static cling in your freshly-laundered clothing, but they won't do anything to keep mosquitoes at bay. To accomplish that, you will need to use insect repellent.

Mosquitoes are attracted to scent and while this might help ward of biting, it definitely won't help them from staying away from you. If you are looking for dryer sheets stick with light scents. Since many have natural fruity and sweet scents I would avoid rubbing in them altogether.

Sadly, they do not help at all. I've tried this without noticeable reduction in bites when I venture into the woods. Products containing DEET are still your best defense.

This does not work for me, I have found the only thing that works is spraying insect repellant on my arms and leggs. Also, the fans that have the refillable repellants work too.
