can you recommend a mosquito repellent for plants and trees?

Hi, I'm not sure why you want a mosquito repellent for trees and shrubs. Can you explain a bit more? The key to controlling mosquitoes is not to leave any standing water on or near your property. And, if you have standing water, you can float a mosquito ring (made with Bacillus thuringiensis--a naturally occuring bacterium that will kill the larvae) on the surface. You can buy these rings at most garden centers.
