Chemical sprays are effective, but it's well documented that ultrasonic devices are not. Theoretically, they are supposed to mimic the noise created by the female mosquito (males don't bite) and drive them away. But recent research has proven this NOT to be the case. In fact it's complete 'nonsense', as one scientist put it!
