There are few things you can do: 1. Go to the pharmacy and buy scented garlic tablets. Start taking the tablets. The mosquitos can not stand the smell of the garlic in your blood stream. 2. After washing your clothes, dry them with a dryer sheet. The mosquitos can not stand that smell either. 3. Take the dryer sheet and wipe your arms, legs or where ever the mosquitos have been biting you or place the dryer sheet in the bed with you. This stuff actually works.

you can just buy the clip on repellant or a bug light to zap them dead :) hang it outside your house and clip the repellant on a counter or just lay it somewere to keep them away...using both will def help kill them

Well considering you live in Arkansas, its a problem you have to live with as Mosquitos thrive in the climate in that part of the country. Most ideas that were given are good but there patchy ideas at best. As far as for when you're sleeping, the best thing to get is a mosquito net that that goes over your whole bed. They're in expensive and work fantastic. Hope i helped.

You did help! But it will be difficult to find a mosquito net here in Korea(used to live in Arkansas). :)

You should be able to order them online. (i suggest online shopping because you asked about online shoes not too long ago.)
You could check on the CDC website for mosquito diseases and control and also see what brand they recommend.

I've heard a clear plastic bag of tap water hanging will act as a repellent.
