I use this mix every year and it seems to work.
Makes 2litres:
6drops of citronella oil
4tble sp surgical spirit
4 tble sp vinegar
1 pint cold tea
1 tsp washing up liquid or tea tree oil
Then add cold wather to make up to 2litres.
Hope this helps

The only one helped me (and I know number of people who also use it after trying bunch) is "Endure". Not for VERY long, but at least for several hours.
