I followed the directions on the bottle to the letter and this product had absolutely no effect. A couple of hours later, after the sun went down, I sat outside in the treated area and was bitten 3 times within 10 minutes. For context, I do not have standing water on my property and do not live in a wooded area where you would expect an abundance of mosquitoes. I tried this product because it contains natural oils instead of chemicals - I hate to say this but, chemicals work better.

Should the spray be directed on the mulched bed ground only or should it also be sprayed on the plants themselves? I do not want to harm my exquisite garden in any way.
