comment When are kids old enough for an electric toothbrush?
Not really an answer to your question, but if mom and/or dad use an electric, a kid may be more encouraged to brush if he/she can use one like mommy and daddy.

comment What to look out for when buying a mosquito repellent (or alternatives) for my kids
As per my answer, adding a fan to the mix may also cut down on mosquitos (although it's questionable how solid that is). That said, adding screens should be the first step. DA01 is correct in that a screen shouldn't reduce air flow terribly, but if you're really concerned about it, there are a number of screens that claim to improve air flow over "traditional" screens.

Yeah, I wouldn't consider eHow reputable, but everything else I could find seemed to be forums linking to the eHow article. I have heard from other places that LED lighting reduces the attractiveness of your area (Holmes on Homes I believe has mentioned it), but I can't vouch for it myself, and that research article I linked seems to suggest otherwise. I felt it deserved a mention, though, since it's one of the very few non-chemical methods I've heard of.
