蚊 wén / mosquito /

林 lín / woods / forest / surname Lin

 

Does anyone know how to say "bug spray" and/or "repellent" in Chinese?  For example if I wanted to go to a store to buy spray/lotion for keeping mosquitoes away or if I wanted to buy a spray can to kill bugs in my house?  

 

Luckily I don't have these problems but I am curious on how to say it.  Dictionary searches didn't help much.

 

You can also try to translate this:

There are many mosquitoes in the forest.

 

Make an example sentence or two and include 汉字, Pinyin & English if possible.

I have the same problem! At the supermarket, I ended up saying "不要蚊子的东西“ She understood me, but I'm sure there's an easier way to say it! 啊呀

there is actually a way to say that, you can use this

 

驱蚊的用品。

Qū wén de yòngpǐn.
which literally means insect repellent products. 
:D I hope those phrases work fine  on your next visit to a supermarket for those! hah!

在苏格兰的林, 没有蚊。 太冷了!

Zài Sūgélán de lín, méiyǒu wén. tài lěng le!

There are no mosquitoes in Scottish forests - it's too cold!

Hey Gillian! Bravo, your sentence is very good!

 

just a quick note:  "forest" is 森林 Sēnlín.

and it's better if you add a preposition(in your chinese sentence) using “里” Lǐ  which means: inside/in;  to indicate that there are no mosquito in the forest. 

Also, you can omit "在" as it means: at; and it'd be more natural and proper in the grammar aspect if you do.

 

just like this

苏格兰的森林里没有蚊子。 <--蚊子 is the same with 蚊 but 蚊子 sounds more natural.

 

:D hope it helps! good job!

hey Wen Zhuo, thanks for your help!

but i think mosquito coil or mosquito repellent incense is called 蚊香 isn't it?

Thanks for the info!

嗨,Gen

谢谢哦!:)

一起加油哦! :D
