  • Drink two tablespoons apple cider vinegar before going out. It's supposed to make you unappealing to them.don't know if it works, but it's cheap.

  • Cutter is the best out there, but spray small portions on your baby, and rub it in as if it is lotion. It really works for me on my 4 year old as well.

  • With a wet area like that I think you might need to invest in a fog machine. thats what my grandparents always use at the lake. It was the only thing that would keep those buggers away! GL!

  • I never knew of the chemical free lemon mosquito wipes. I guess I'll be changing over.

  • This might sound silly, but use a dryer sheet, it is also a good thing to use when you are pregnant, and works really well!
