SAFELY WARD OFF BUGS & MOSQUITOS
Bug spray aside, you can help keep mosquitoes from zeroing in on you as their next victim. Considering that they carry diseases, this is one easy way to stay healthy.
Wear lighter clothes. Mosquitoes show a preference towards darker colored clothes.
Go for patterns. Stripes, floral patterns, plaids and other patterned materials are more likely to deter mosquitoes.
Avoid being too sweet. What you eat affects your natural smell. Eating more garlic can help prevent mosquito bites – but too much sugar in your diet and you may be sought after for the sweet taste.
Change the way you smell. Your perfumes, laundry soap, and shampoo might all be contributing to the reasons for mosquitoes being so into you – change things around until you discover the culprit.
