To prevent mosquito bites there are only two ways to do it:

1. Insect repellent with deet
2. Over the counter Antihistamines

Or you could build yourself a screened in back porch/swimming pool like people in the south
They are only doing it urban areas where malaria or other blood bourne diseases are a major problem and are already seeing great results. People in those places don't have access to antihistamines, deet and sure as **** can't screen in their tin shack or outdoor sewage puddle.
