I plant citronella around my house and boat dock.
The plant works somewhat, and grabbing a few leaves to rub on your body helps.
It grows like a weed, and you could probably split it twice a season.
Drinking tonic water helps, and it's a great excuse to down a few gin and tonics, blue cheese olives included.
The tonic contains quinine, which is what soldiers in WW2 were provided in Africa.
To be honest, though, my wife works for a subsidiary of Johnson Wax, so I go to there proucts more than anything else.
Their Deepwoods Off Sportmans bottle is 98% deet, and absolutely nothing will come near you with that stuff on.
