    #1 way to avoid mosquitos: Move to the big city! I haven’t seen a mosquito in Chicago in 5 years. And then it was only one! Of course, the one mosquito I see is the day after they announced that West Nile Disease killed someone in Illinois.

  2. Eat lots and lots of garlic.

    Oy, god. Move to the big city? I live in Houston, right in the heart of it, and mosquitoes do all but start street gangs around here. Garlic? I wish it worked.

    I’m allergic to mosquitoes, and I’ve found only two things that work for me… I take a thiamine supplement every morning, and I use a spray made from a teaspoon of catnip essential oil in four ounces of fractionated coconut oil.

    &nbsp &nbsp What’s truly bizarre this summer is that I have yet to see a mosquito. And I live in Alabama. No water, no mosquitoes.

    &nbsp &nbsp Garlic doesn’t work. Normally, they chew on me like crazy, and I eat garlic every day. I’m also a bit dubious about slathering up with vinegar cologne, too. Yuck.

    &nbsp &nbsp Citronella candles work a little bit. Cranking up a big charcoal-starter fire runs the bugs off, too.

    Garlic DOES work, but eating it is the wrong way to go about it. This stuff is awesome and the smell goes away after an hour or two.

    Glad to see it make #1 on the list, but the application is all wrong. In addition, grow garlic in your flower beds.
