I don't think they bite me because I'm sweet. :no:

They still bite me. I need to just get rid of them before I'm lunch. No standing water - just the pool. Garlic doesn't work - internal nor Eau de Garlique spray. Vinegar - well, nothing will get near me, but I still get bit. These suckers are BIG too. I think they are hitchhiking from Minnesota on tourists.

I read Vtamin B-1 is suppose to help naturally? Never tried it though. But I hear you in all honestly deet doesn't do much for me either. :(

Try putting lemon Dawn dishwashing liquid out in a shallow pan with a dab of water. Skeeters love it.

DONT forget to include ticks on your pest list,,,OR always wished you did!!

Use generous amounts of Deet and Permethin,,,Tempo (Real safe,,made from geranium flowers)(and does NOT smell)around the yard is all purpose creepy crawler control,,,inside and outside the house. Heard Orange scented things things help too.

Outside bugs and ticks are eaten generously by guinea hens if you can stand the noise and animals,,,for country use only!! Stay well,keep bugs to a minimum!!
