  • Rub him down with a dryer sheet and then stick in his belt-loop. Seriously, this works! Also, spray around your door, patio, wherever with LISTERINE!!! Do it before going outside and it keeps the bugs away. This too works really well :) Good luck!

  • Skin so soft from Avon (the original scent blue cap)works wonders it is oily but put it on and no mosquitos.

    It seems that mosquitos are attracted to sweet fragrance and this does have a nice smell to it but for some reason it works great it is a very good mosquito repellent. GL

    And for those bites put some anti itch cream on them. Or hold some ice down on them that would atleast num it for a while.

  • Bounce dryer sheets keep bees and mosquitos away. Safety pin one to the back of her shirt.
