But I was bitten several times while fishing Friday night on base and I have itched and scratched and been miserable since. Calamine, Benadryl (rub and oral), cortisone you name it. Nothing seems to help. I've dug my skin raw and now I notice hard knots in the muscle on my arm close to where the bites are at my elbow. Also I get these jabs like a bee stinging me. Thinking I may need to head to med express tomorrow. But was really curious.
    Even our flies bite. Good luck healing... I hope you don't contract some sort of African Maow-Maow disease.

    I just looked at your link. I have never been concerned about mosquitoes, but now with a toddler, I am. Does this product make the neighborhood smell like garlic? I have known a couple of people that eat raw garlic everyday, and they reek! I have garlic growing in my garden. I wonder if I can just use that. TIA.

    Edit: I do use that coyote urine spray to fend off rabbits and deer. That stuff is ridiculously offensive. I shouldn't worry about garlic.

    Thanks for that option, too. We have started a garden this year, and we could expand. I never knew there were citronella plants, but it has to come from somewhere. Good info. Happy growing, y'all!

    I was going to jump on here and endorse the plant angle as well. We call them mosquito plants which is honestly what I think may places call them. We've bought them at Lowes (most recently in LP). They smell like citronella so I assume we're talking about the same thing.

    We put one on the front porch (between the rocking chairs) and a couple on the back patio. I've really had no complaints about mosquitos. Granted, it's a new build house so maybe they're just not there regardless - but I doubt it. The plants smell nice and keep well over the winter (indoors). Besides, even if they crap out, I think they're only like $5 and grow quick with some TLC.

    My dad always planted a bunch of marigolds. The big ones and small ones. Always kept the mosquitoes away and the place always smelled good.
    If the military wanted you to have a spouse, or family, they would have issued you one.
