Repelling Mosquitos and other biting insects

Recommended Posts

I am constantly being bitten by Mosquitos when out gardening. I have tried repellents but they don't work, hell I get bitten even in the winter. I was bitten today and its knocked me for 6 as my leg is now swelling and feels like its gonna split.

What do you guys use to stop the bites?

Are you fair skinned ? My wife is like chalk and I am like a bit of old leather at this time of year . When we go out to the horse she gets half eaten and they don't even look at me . I think it can be down to your complexion / skin colour as to how appetizing you seem ......

Like you Im also like a bit of auld leather at the time of year. I've used Deet, eaten Garlic and recently used the Citronella but still get bitten... must be good blood or the alcohol from the night before that they are attracted to.

Just bought some jungle formula I will know tomorrow if it works. I seem to be like a free meal ticket to them bloody horse flies. I do find lighting a smoke up keeps them away but cannot do that all day.

Jungle formula 100% guarantee this works, was working in a swampish sort of area a few weeks bag, first day I got eaten alive, used this jungle formula and no further bites, you can watch a swam of biting bugs hovering 3-4 inches away from you but they never land or bite. (Dont get it in you mouth or on your lips, it tingles and makes your mouth go numb lol)
