I am like a magnet for mosquitoes. I am going camping in two weeks on Assateague Island. I need every single repellent idea, stat!

So for whatever reason, I get bit a lot by mosquitoes. This is very unpleasant. I am going on vacation in two weeks to Assateague Island, to camp on the beach for a week. Reading the visitor's guide today, I see that visiting is recommended in the spring and fall as the summer brings a huge mosquito population.
What are the various ways that I can prepare for this? We will be sleeping in a tent. I am willing to try semi-gross things (i.e. not showing for days) if it will help.
I have Cutter Deep Woods bug spray that I am bringing with me. I may buy a citronella candle. Are there other measures? What are your secret tips? Any foods to avoid eating? Any foods to DEFINITELY eat? Any new contraptions that actually work?
Any suggestions will be taken to heart. Thanks!
