Worried about get mosquito bites?

Posted by   + Show Post

Since the west nile virus is spreading in Texas, my family likes to camp but I have know desire because of this virus.  I worry that they might get it.  This type of thought process is exhausting.

Someone at my job recently said this.  I don't normally buy dryer sheets but think I might now!

Quoting pampire:

Dryer sheets in your pockets help ward off mosquitos.  We use it everytime we camp.

my son cant go outside without getting bit. We were outside for just a few minutes the other day and he came in with three big bites. Sprays dont work, I'm the same way, i get eaten alive. I'm not sure what you could do if you're going camping, i just try to only take him outside earlier in the day, keep him in during the evenings when the bugs start getting bad. 

My mom has these cit

i hate this laptop. lol hit reply somehow. 

anyway, my mom has these citronila candles she takes camping with her, i cant for the life of me remember the name of them, but they put them around where they camp and never have an issue. Maybe they're tiki brand candles, i think that's it.
