@Robert Gentel,
Do you have the option of using plants that repel mosquitos?

@Robert Gentel,
Several years ago,
in the summer, a friend of mine
used an electric device to electrocute them; filament glowed blue.
Apparently mosquitos r phototropic.
I 'd hear a zap every time one of them got it; pleasing sound.

My friend lost his n does not know how to replace it
nor how to identify it, but that was really good.

This was for home defense.
He defended his back porch.

@OmSigDAVID,
Yep. That's a hot date in some areas. Six pack and a bug zapper.

@roger,
better than watching the paint dry ...although with a six pack even that can be entertaining.

I was hoping that electronic device would be appropriate for my trip to Bhutan and India in November, but the "heat" factor and transportability "on the road" seems too much of a handicap.

@ehBeth,
Not really, they'd come in from a variety of locations where I don't have room for plants.

Plus, repellents aren't as effective as the plug in mosquito killer product I'm looking into.

The mosquito tablets & device is very common in Europe & South America. I bought a couple there and use an adapter here in America, but have long since run out of the tablets...! I hgave not been able to find any here. The device is very safe to people and pets as all my friends have them & uses it.

Doing a Google search on mosquito tablets pads gave me the following links:

The device you are looking for is produced under the brand name of LIfe Systems.

http://bike.lomall.net/lifesystems-plug-in-mosquito-killer-and-tablets


Top Features of the Lifesystems Plug-In Mosquito Killer and Tablets

* Suitable for worldwide use
* 1 tablet effective for up to 10 hours
* Includes 15 tablets

Helps reduce the danger and annoyance of mosquito bites at night.
Entomological research has shown that electric mosquito killers of this kind, start knocking mosquitoes down less than one minute after being plugged in. One tablet will kill mosquitoes and other flying insects in a room for up to 10 hours.



Here's the Amazon page for it in the UK:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lifesystems-Mosquito-Killer-Refill-Tablets/dp/B000PBVQ52


Here's another version of the plug-in that uses a liquid rather than the tablets.

http://www.roamingfox.co.uk/Mosqui-Go-Insect-Repellent-Plug-pr-16306.html

No one seems to mention what the chemical is that is in the tablets or liquid and the Lifesystems website doesn't appear to carry the plug-in product anymore. It looks like the product is not sold in the US.

Edit: Had to dig deeper into the website to find it:

@Butrflynet,
This is about as close as it comes to detailing the ingredients:

@Robert Gentel,
Have you found any solutions? I've been looking online for several hours now trying to find those plug in mosquito repellents and can't find anything besides a portable one that has to be lit, sonic plug ins, and bug zappers. I am so frustrated and my kids are being bitten up each night. I was curious if you found any reasons the plugs in aren't safe as that is the only reason I can figure out that they wouldn't sell them in the US.
