Good call ms411 plus I already have a few mosquito bites on my legs. 🙁
I've always been mosquito bait and I've tried DEET and Avon Skin So Soft here. Someone told me to eat a lot of garlic? Is there anything else that works? Praying I don't get Chik. I understand its not contagious, however, once you get the virus once can you get it again if bitten?
Deet is the only thing that really works. Also it takes a little time for your body to develop an immunity to mosquitoes. You'll never be completely immune but the bites lessen.
You can contract dengue again if you get it once but not chikungunya. But it's far preferable not to get either even once.
Do not believe the mosquito myths. The mosquitoes have never stopped biting me, and I generally get bitten almost every day. Everybody's different so you have to find what works for you.
I use a fan most of the time to keep them away, and that works most of the time, and the bigger the fan the better. I also wear fleece or flannel when I'm home so they can't bite through. I sleep under a quilt 365 so they can't bite through. I can tolerate heat better than mosquitoes.
I don't like using sprays or oils for a number of reasons so fans work best for me. The only time I'm bitten is when I'm uncovered and not directly in fan air flow.
Nobody can tell how much garlic you have to eat to keep skeeters away. Almost everybody eats garlic in some form so I don't think it's a deterrent.
Keep covered and stay close to a fan. It has worked for me since I was a kid.

If you use no protection other than a fan it's not surprising you're frequently bitten!
I have a chemical-free "Dynatrap" catcher on my deck and, after heavy rains when the mossies are particularly bad, I light a simple coil outside my front door to deter them from coming inside. When working outside in the bush/yard I use a Deet-containing repellent.
I'm no expert on the best attire for a job interview but I'm a pretty conservative person so I'd say #3 - you want to look "presentable".
Now for the mosquito problem:
While repellants like Deet work well you can lessen your chances of a "close encounter" with mosquitos and no-see-ums by avoiding the use of perfumes, colognes, after-shaves, scented body splashes, scented hairsprays and other similar products as the "sweet aromas" act as an attractant.
Since I stopped using those types of products I'm rarely bother by the little pests.
