    Hello Marky, i have a compound that could be added to a fragrance which then added to a FIRFA exempt formula that will give some good efficacy. Usage is ~0.05% -0.1% and is natural extract produced here in Aus. Would work with eugenol as its emempt for example. I can manufacture a (fragrance) concentrate for you to add to a product such as a gel or spray.

    Lavender oil . I usually use lavender flowers to repellent mosquitoes at our deck in the summer time. Smell good and repellent mosquitoes.

    From our experience one of the best repellents is Lemon-scented Eucalyptus (Corymbia citriodora) .  We produced a simple effective relellant using Corymbia citriodora.

    Well researched, for example, J Am Mosq Control Assoc. 2006 Sep;22(3):507-14.

    PMD, a registered botanical mosquito repellent with deet-like efficacy.
