    I have heard Avon Skin So Soft acts as a repellant, but I really don't care for the smell. Also recently read that dark colors attract them?? Let me know if any of these work.

    using a odorless deoderant when you know you'll be around them and drink lots of water. They are attracted to sweet smells like if you are drinking soda or juice and wearing scents like perfume and deoderant. My daughter has been treated for MRSA twice from bites and these tips came from her doc.

    If i am travelling to a region that has mosquitoes,i take a course of vitamin b tablets before i go and while there,apparently they dont like the taste of them,it seems to work for me,although i do use a repellant spray as well.

    I heard that dark colors attract them, fragrances and sweat up to 160 feet away.

    Thanks Debblo, I have ordered SSS. Hadn't read that about dark colours. My exercise-wear is mostly dark, maybe I need to seek out some pale stuff in the end of summer sales.
