Both Joshua Tree and Death Valley National Parks are mosquito and pest free (though rattlesnakes, scorpions, black widow spiders, bees and wasps are not uncommon). Both parks' extremely dry environments (Death Valley is one of the driest places on earth) lack suitable habitat for mosquitos to reproduce. Fill  the space the repellent makes available with extra sunscreen and water. There are few places in either park to avoid the unrelenting sun and you should always be adequately prepared when visiting either park.
