One can always depend upon Tamarack Song to have a different – dare I say hollistic? – view of things. Over at Nature Skills, he has an article on Mosquito Bite Prevention. Some of his more interesting advise is thus:

  • Don't smell funny and they won't bite you. Avoid perfumes, "smell like you belong". (Eat garlic to mask your breath.)
  • Don't look like a clown and they won't be attracted to you. Natural, earth hue colors help you to blend in.
  • Bask on oil. Mosquitos don't like to get their wings greasy.
  • Enjoy a breeze. Mosquitos can only fly 8mph.
