Now that you are all hydrated and full from delicious BBQ, you will need to repel those pesky mosquito!  Nothing ruins a nice day like a swarm of mosquitos.  Now whether these mosquito repeller apps work has yet to be proved but they all claim to emit a high frequency sound that mosquitos dislike, therefore deterring them from coming near you if your phone is emitting this sound.  The sound is  not audible to the human ear but will hopefully make your patio-filled evenings a little more comfortable.  Some of these mosquito repeller apps even say that you can change the frequency to repel the specific breed of mosquito in your region.


Hopefully with these apps in your back pocket your summer nights will be a little better!
