So you don't have aeroguard there? There's tropical strength which works a lot better than the regular.
Tropical Strength Aeroguard
Best invention!

I'm glad to live in the Pacific Northwest. Very few mosquitoes here... and thank goodness because I hate them.

Mosquitoes love perfume and hairspray. I just happen to wear both every day. And when I go out to wait for the bus in the morning, I have to wait up at the porch and the bus driver almost drove off without me one day.

fabric softener sheets drive them away. Fold one up and stick it in the back pocket of your pants. I do it every night during the summer and I rarely get bit.

As a transplant from Wisconsin who misses many things about the midwest, mosquitoes are most certainly NOT on that list.

Has anyone tried Permethrin-impregnated clothing?
I not wild about the toxicity, but for limited use, I could do it. But if it doesn't work...

If you know anyone who's an Avon salesperson or know where you can buy Avon products (some malls have kiosks selling it), I recommend Skin So Soft. I don't even remember what its original use was supposed to be, but as word spread that it keeps mosquitoes away, I think they started marketing it that way. My mom was an Avon lady, so we always had a good supply of it.

SSS was originally marketed/created as a bath oil... a capful or two in the bath water & viola! - your skin was sooooo soft.

Don't know how someone decided it worked better as mosquito repellant than skin softener, but they did. And Avon has given up the ghost that SSS is a beauty product - when my mom bought some for our mission trip to Antiqua back in March, it now comes in a little green spray bottle (ala Off! brand spray) & doesn't look a thing like a beauty product. If you can't fight 'em, join 'em, right?

I've been looking for one of those new Off clip ons everywhere, they are always sold out. They probably don't even work but the only spray that works for me is Deep Woods Off and it's so gross. Even worse than mosquitoes are horse/deer flies-they're about to start up where I live and whenever I go walking any time after 5 or 6 PM they attack.

None around here in PA, so far, but I am sure that they will make an appearane sometime in the near by future.
