Ah, an area of expertise for my. My list of qualifications.
- I am a former camp counselor
- Across the street from me is a protected wetland.
You could say I have a Masters in Mostiqology.
If you want to avoid mosquitoes listen to me:
Avoid perfumed shampoos, deoderants, body lotions, hair spray, hair goo, lip balm, scented laundry degerent, scented laundy static cling sheets. Bugs are attracted to smells. Having cut out all of the above in my life from April - October, I rarely am bothered.
2, before going outside spray yourself with Off (or similiar) Wear a baseball cap sprayed with the stuff.
Mosquitoes lurk from dusk to dawn, wear long sleeves and long pants if you can. Sock are a good idea too. Don’t forget to spray your wrists, socks and neck , the pulse points, to avoid getting bitten.
Take two tablets of brewer’s yeast daily. It puts a coating of sorts across your skin that you cannot feel or smell, but the bugs can. This was told to be by two seperate sources: a former drill instructor for the Marines at Le Juene. AND a vet for my dog who takes them for himself and his rovers. Having tried the brewer’s yeast on myself while working at a camp on Lake Huron, I can attest that within a week, I never had a problem with the bug and I never wore bug spray. It probably should be noted that bugs do not like campfires and I would also get my sweatshirt in the smoke of a newly lit fire (as all conselors would) to help dispel the breatures.
WE are all pilgrims on the same journey - but some pilgrims have better road maps.
