Bugged



I hate mosquitos...why God allowed two of them on the Ark I will never understand. This time of year I either shower in pure DEET or suffer the consequences. Anyone have any luck with any other products that aren't as toxic as DEET? I would love to try it. The skintastic and other "family friendly" sprays don't seem to phase them for me.

Yes thats a strange shot, but I got hit about ten times in a matter of seconds when cutting down some undergrowth in my natural area today. The first hard freeze of the year can't come soon enough!

Yowza! You are sensitive to them, aren't you? My husband is just like you, and so is our daughter... my son and I could sit in a box full of mosquitoes and they wouldn't even light on us. Strange. I can't recommend anything, sorry, other than that first HARD FREEZE. Don't scratch!!

I'll let you borrow Jim. If he's there they won't bite anyone else!

They eat me alive too. I haven't found anything to stop them either.

My DH swears that Skin So Soft by Avon keeps them from itching.....but unfortunately that doesn't work for me!!!! Guess it wouldn't hurt to try it....it does smell good!!!

I don't go out much in the summer because they will eat me up too. UGH! I carry a tube of Benadryl cream with me at all times.

We bought the clip on Off fans and they seemed to work.
