There are lots of mosquitoes here this year swarming around, and I like my early AM walks when they are out the most. Well, someone gave me a tip on how to keep them away, and I tried it. It was to use Bounce fabric softeners on yourself. I rubbed a fabric softener all over my head, hands, arms, etc (open places on me), then carried an extra in my pocket. And it worked. I thought the first day that maybe it was coincidence, but I have been doing this for a week or so now and have had only one bad mosquito bite. And it's not much more expensive than the bug spray. I may use bug spray as a back-up some days, though not as much as last year.
If anyone tries it, let me know how it works!
