Whenever it comes to handling insect infestation, mosquitoes and ants are the first two ones that come to our mind. However, apart from the poisonous, chemically made repellents sold in the form of sprays in the market, there are several natural and homemade mosquito repellent that are not only cheaper but also work better.
The first thing to prevent mosquitoes and ants is to know the exact point of their entry. Sealing it may help the most. Other homemade mosquito repellent options are as follows.
Natural Mosquito Repellent
Firstly, similar to how the incense sticks work, you can burn wood charcoal and throw a bit of sage or rosemary in it to repel mosquitoes. This partly works with ants as well.
For even more effective natural bug repellent, you can mix one part garlic juice with 5 parts water in a small spray bottle. Shake well before using. Spray lightly on exposed body parts for an effective repellent lasting up to 5 – 6 hours.
The leaves, seeds and seed oil of the Neem tree contain sallanin, a compound which has effective mosquito repelling properties.
Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus
Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) is a natural, plant-based oil. It works as well at preventing mosquito bites as products that contain lower concentrations (6.65%) of DEET (chemical insect repellent).
Catnip oil is derived from the Nepeta cataria plant. It may offer mosquito protection for seven hours.
Natural Ant Repellent
Make lines that ants can’t cross with products at home such as: cinnamon, chili powder, salt, cayenne pepper, chalk, corn-meal or baby powder. You can also use the same natural mosquito repellent mentioned above for ants as well.

The most effective repellant I've used for ants and all kinds of roaches (including those huge water bugs common in coastal cities like LA. San Diego, Miami, etc.) is boric acid. I've had difficulty locating it lately, but found a good supply at the Dollar Store. One summer when we lived in LA, we left for vacation and left the flute to the fireplace open. When we returned two weeks later, the fireplace (which was brick and took up the whole wall) was covered inside and out with those huge water bugs. My mother told me to get some boric acid, spray it around the perimeter of the outside of the house and around every vent where they could enter the house. She said it tastes sweet, so they eat it and carry it back to their nests, and it destroys their insides. It must have worked because they disappeared within days and we never saw another one. The caveat is to keep it away from small children. Although it's used medicinally to treat infections of the eye, it's harmful when ingested.
I had read where ants don't like the dryer cloths softener tissues, I took the used ones and started putting them in cubbards and around where the ants like to go and it seems to work. I also use ant stakes, no ants this year. They don't seem to like vinegar either and I wipe down the counters with that.
