Take garlic pills. They don't make you smell, but the mosquitos don't like it and they stay away.
For Tara -By the way, mosquitos can also carry West Nile Virus. Only causes a mild viral syndrome for most folks - headache, body aches etc.

I forgot to mention, garlic can act as a blood thinner, so if you are on aspirin or some thing like that, check with your doctor first.

Hi Leeann

No, I dont live there now, I live in Austin, Texas. I spent the first 24 years of my life there though.

I miss it sometimes (only in the fall).....

When did you live there?

Jessica, We have never lived in Union Lake. But Live in Northville and own a business in New Hudson right now, The Union Lake/Commerce area has really grown (to say the least). the small area that we own a business in right now is growing at a very fast rate of speed. so fast that our business has really benefited from it and that has made a great selling point, so hopefully this will sell in the next 30 days and we can get on with the next adventure of our life. Living in the great USVI.

I also heard rubbing garlic oil on skin repels mosquitos but that might smell. West Nile Virus is more prevelant in the North. I live in PA and we had a few scares in the Tri-state area. I think even a few people had died over the last year from West Nile. When I did my search, Dengue seems to be the big issue in St. Thomas, Latin Americas and originating from southeast Asian countries. The spread of these diseases is through shipping companies and travelers. Often mosquitos get into packages/crates lay eggs and there you have it a whole new population of disease intoxicated mosquitos. One mosquito can lay 25,000 eggs, down with the mosquitos...

Stu, did you purchase your Magnet?
