mosquitos fûcking worship me, as in they spend all day diving into me as much as I can, I'm always bitten - I had to go to teh stupid emergency room last christmas as I had an allergic reaction to about 30 bites on each ankle and they were swollen like the bastard elephant man.

The best help with mosquito bites is Tiger balm. IMHO

Wasps are very useful, they remove lots of pests including mossies.

They tend to go anywhere that they detect sweat...

A mate of mine, if walking a golf course, will wipe sweat off his brow and wipe it on the blade of a wedge, then hold it aloft...

He swears blind he rarely gets bitten whilst on the golf course, coz the mossies will go to the highest place where sweat is detected...
