sorry i don't know if your a lady or a gentleman but my doc said don't wear an purfums and have a shower with a citrus based shower gel i used to get bitten really bad i tried this way last year and never got bite its worth a try and its cheaper than spray's that don't work have a good holiday

rub some citrus (either orange or lemon) to your skin. insects will keep away from you (as well as cats).

Take antihistamine tablets every day for 2 weeks before you go, - Last year in Greece a Greek woman told me that the only thing to keep them away is your own urine?

Well, this may not help, given your destination.

If you were going to the high mountains where aspen trees grow, the "chalk" on the bark of aspens, when rubbed on a person's skin is a "natural mosquito repellant".

Take a garlic pill from the health shop every day that should stop them.

Not sure how to stop them apart from the plug in machines that give out a vapour, this works for me. If you do get bites, the quicker you can rub some alcohol on the bite the better. I used to get these a lot and the alcohol helps reduce the itch and the swelling.

Nontoxic Bug Repellent

Citronella oil is an alternative to DEET. It's sold commercially but is thought to be less effective than DEET. If the alternative, however, is lumps the size of eggs (a very vivid picture!), then citronella may well be the way to go.

It's sold over the counter in the US - just check the labels. Be sure to check for skin reactions first - dab a little on the forearm prior to the travel. If, after a few hours, there's no reaction, you should be OK to smear it all over yourself.

Happy trails!

Curiously, bugs, mosquitoes and flys all the hate the scent of lavender and peppermint !! if you have essential oil of either one put a few drops into a spray bottle of water and shake well. Then simply spray affected areas to repel the bugs. chemical free, very cheap and very effective for protecting our sensitive little bodies.


Take alot of vitamin B1 it is natural, and mosquitos can detect it and won't bite.

agree with Penelope and rub down with lemon juice or any other citrus oil they are great deterrants

Take a B-Complex Vitamin every day, its good for you. Within a week mosquitoes will hate you.

I get the same reaction. I guess you're looking for a natural repellent. Lemon eucalyptus oil is probably the best, if you can get hold of it. I think it's called simply "Repel". Geranium & soybean oil (marketed as Bite Blocker) is also good. There are many others - some like clove oil thyme oil should NOT be applied directly to the skin without dilution. Vitamin B1 has (in some studies, found to be useless) and so has eating garlic, but you have to consider the social effects of that!

Take some anti-histamines with you for when you do get bitten - that'll help relieve the symptoms.
