    As I'm out weeding near sundown quite a few bugs, including mosquitoes, seem to be very interested in flying close to my face. What, if anything, can I do to deter their curiosity?

    I thought about attaching mosquito net to a safari hat but not sure that would be a good option.

    A good mosquito repellent with DEET . Several brands are available. I use Cutter 2 pack. Cost $5.for two cans and works well. Spray all exposed skin. For face and ears that mosquitos love,,just spray it on your hand and rub on.
