Mosquitos seem to single me out no matter where i go. Ugghhhhh.
I use to get bit by the mosquitos often when outside at night, but my wife got me some OFF 'soft & scented' by Johnson. It's a lotion that goes on easily and doesn't make your skin feel oily. We were out one night with the whole family and they got bit often. So they look at me and ask, are you getting bitten, and I said no. They were in shock because I was always the favorite target. I told them my secret and it worked for them also.

It's a myth that the !ocals don't get bitten, they get bitten as offen as us foreigners. The difference is that they havs built a resistance to the chemicals that cause the red swelling so don't show the bites so readily.
