Is there an effective food that makes your skin less attractive to mosquito's?

My dad would eat onions like an apple. He never seemed to be swarmed when I was. I still think he was just fucking with me, but maybe it worked.

2 cups of sodium hydroxide.

I've heard yeast helps. May be an old wives tale.

IIRC, garlic is pretty effective against blood parasites due to sulfur content.
Link Posted: 10/2/2014 10:42:50 PM EST
I heard that garlic works although I've never tried it.

Eat? Not sure, but alcohol does the trick. If your not hungry or thursty, take one of the Bounce dryer sheets, unfold, rub on your neck, and leave there and they wont be able to find you. It works, I leave is Florida where it seems ALL of the mosquitos also live.

Not sure about food, but constant gin and tonics should help.

Vitamin B also seemed to work for me.

Or Vodka, lots of Vodka.

Get a Thermacell. I know you can't eat it.. They home in on CO2 so kill (per their flyer I believe) em unless you can hold your breath awhile.

As I understand it, they are attracted to your CO2 emissions. So quit breathing so much.

Or find a larger emitter than you to draw them away from you.

I also like eating onions like apples...I am white...I train jiu jitsu...I have no body ink...the earth is 6 THOUSAND YEARS OLD!

...precise correlation!

Lots of salt. They should definitely leave you alone then.

Freshly fallen snow.

Garlic doesn't work. I get tore up by skeeters, and we go through 7-8 bulbs a week.



Link Posted: 10/2/2014 10:51:09 PM EST
Raw garlic will keep the skeeters away if you eat enough. As a bonus, it will also keep other people away.

Mosquitoes. Won't repel them but everyone you eat is one less to bother you.

Everybody seems to think Garlic works.

Just ask the crew that works my Blueberry fields in the spring, before we get to spraying.
Those guys eat the hell out of Chili Vinagre', and load up on the garlic in everything. It's not just a sample of one.

To be fair, I have no clue how much worse it might be, if I eliminated Garlic from the diet.
We might just have a localized subspecies of skeeters that are drawn to Dago and Mexican flavored blood.

I have a theory that my unhealthy diet of mostly Mountain Dew, Cheeseburgers, Bacon, Black coffee, whiskey, IPA's, and enough nicotine to murder a small South American village has rendered my body chemistry toxic and generally undesirable to most bugs and other varmints. Even dogs won't bite me.

Good one! I would not only subscribe to your newsletter, I would hire you to hang out in my backyard to eat the mosquitoes while you write it!

I eat a lot of garlic, 4-7 cloves a day, I still get attacked by the bastards. What works is using either lavender or peppermint essential oil on exposed skin and zero bites. I put about 5-6 drops of either oil on a cotton ball and soak it with isopropyl alcohol and wipe it on. no bites for a few hours but I smell like I rolled through a herb garden.

Hire a pest controlman to spray your house or learn how to do it yourself, problem solved.

We live on a lake & have hellacious skeeters. Last year a neighbor recommended planting mums around the patio (which we did) AWESOME skeeter repellant. Try it!

Onion and garlic are popular but I think a 6 ounce serving of DDT is probably going to work the best.

They make natural insecticides out of Chrysanthemums called Pyrethrum.

Its potent shit and found in many bug bombs.

I've always heard Brewer's Yeast, never tried it though.
