Does anyone else just get eaten up by mosquitos when they are outside???

Ugh...I'm so tired of being over run by mosquitos! Seriously...I have 20 bites on me at the moment...and they're driving me crazy! I can't even enjoy being outside in the yard...even during the DAY!!!! How does everyone cope with them? I want to know how you keep them away???

  • Don't laugh to hard but this actually works. Take a dryer sheet doesnt matter if it is scented or not, but rub it on your exposed skin and they wont bite you.

  • Hey CA Girl - mosquitos love me too. You might try that repellent you wear, a clip-on thingee. I can't stand the spray repellent, makes me feel so icky.

  • I haven't figured out how to keep them away, I think they like some people better than others.

  • Outside, Inside, there's no difference. If they are going to bite, it doesn't matter where I am at.

  • There's a patch called "Don't bite me" that I'm going to try. It's only V.B1, which for some peeps keeps them away. Me and my DD also get eaten alive.
