Greensboro, NC -- Nobody enjoys pesky mosquito bites in the summertime.

If you don't want to use the sprays you can buy, we found these tips on www.huffingtonpost.com for repelling mosquitoes naturally.

For one, citronella can keep mosquitoes away for up to 20 minutes, but candles in general keep mosquitoes away. It's the smoke, not the scent, that repels them.

A fan can keep them away because they're poor fliers so a breeze will send them off course.

It's also said if you eat garlic, that helps keep the pesky insects away.

The CDC says the peak time for mosquitoes is dawn to dusk. Wear long clothing when you can.
