I heard that if you eat vegemite it makes them stay away from you.

Thats because of the Vitamin B in it which is repellent to the little critters, so if you don't like "vegemite" (Thats marmite to the discerning english person)

Not quite correct there Mim, they are very different & to the discerning Antipodean, Vegemite
tastes way better

I don't know if anyone has heard about these. It's the first time I have. They have made patches to put on your skin that repells mosquitos. They last for up to 36 hours. I think it's weird - no-one has told me yet if they work.

Try Avon Skin So Soft original bath oil. it's on the list of things this wonder product is known for. I use it and from what I can tell, it works

check this site out. it has a link to the most effective repellents and seems to explain the different types.

altho you still dont know whether your coming or going, different strokes for different folkes am afraid. it seem to all come from the chemical composition of your sweat (or something like that)
