Yes, in any group, I seem to be the mosquito magnet. I use something called "Mosquito Guard", which has no DEET.

I make an herbal repellent. The main ingredient is lemon balm* suspended in isopropyl alcohol. Works great and smells lovely.


*plus lavender and tansy, all homegrown organically

Mosquito Magnet?

Message 13 of 13 (1,870 Views)

Are you a magnet for mosquitos?  What is the best repellant you have used?
