We use the coils out on the deck at home since they are cheap as chips.
We also have a Raid Outdoor Mossie lamp, same as the Mortein one that Amanda describes, the refills and candles are so damned expensive though, its no good as a long term solution. We took it away camping at the weekend and put it on the table outside because I don't mind paying $10 for three nights usage, for a short term solution.
Only just recently we tried the Aerogard roll-on 'Tropical Strength' on a trip to Vanuatu and it was excellent, no bites in a whole ten days and it doesn't stink, so that's my choice for the moment.
We also use lots of citronella candles and a citronella oil burner, but really don't think thay have any effect, other than to look pretty.
Lots of people swear by Avon's Skin-So-Soft cream and Marmite* for the Vitamin B.
* Note to self: Eat the Marmite, do not rub it on your skin

I searched on here for tips & found a thread about taking vitamin b, what I would also like to know is if anyone has used a portable bug zapper, do they work?

When activated the can dispenses a short burst of spay into the air every 30 seconds or so and targets an array of different pests. It is a natural product and apparently quite harmless to humans and pets alike.
