I don't recall who told me this, and I haven't yet tried it, but to avoid mosquito's, I was told to use 'bounce' dryer sheets - just wipe them on your exposed ankles and arms and tuck it in your clothing somewhere. Plus it smells good.  Also, there is now a new mosquito repellent that is a dry spray-on powder that is not the greasy smelly product we are used to. 

Cheers, Hillary
