Deer and Mosquitos

Yesterday, a pair of beautiful deer munched on our neighbor's roses until we chased them off. That got me to thinking. Last year for the first time, I planted marigolds all around all three vegetable beds. And we didn't have a deer invasion. The internet says marigolds and deer don't like each other!!! I planted lots of marigolds around the patio last year, too. We had no mosquitos. Was that a coincidence? If that is true, it's a simple solution. Anybody have any thoughts on this?
