Fascinating!

I'm a type O and yep, they love me.

My ex used to joke that I was her skeeter repellent, because if I was around they wouldn't bite her! ;o)

Haven't found anything better (as effective and as pleasant to apply/wear) than the Bug Bar I posted about upthread.

Just read that a metal spoon run under hot water, then pressed on the bite, will stop the itching.

I just bought some Bug Brew Spritz from Jo Peterson, the festie gal who owns Joie Grrl Herbals. I love it! Check her out. I'm pretty sure she'll have a booth in Crafts.

This is really frustrating when mosquitoes bite you, there must be any solution too, may be mosquito magnet, trap, net or you should avoid the place where mosquitoes have made their house.

If you do get bitten, try rubbing the itchy spot with the inside of a banana peel - It works.

LED lights don't attract them.
