Here is a link to prevent mosquito bites since NC is the mosquito bite capiatal of the world.

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_...2174657AAMeFud

If this doesn't work try the patches or the wristbands from QVC.

I'll let you know if the patches work when I get back from my trip.

The best way to prevent them from biting you is to find someone that can't go outside without getting bit and always make sure they are with you when you are outside. That way the mosquitoes will attack them and leave you alone.
Always works for my wife, she never gets bit when she is with me.

HA!! The mosquitos here in Carmel, NY are pretty big!! We have lots of them because of all the lakes.

However....the mosquitos in Minnesota have landing gear & tail lights...they're HUGE!!! LOL!!!

Wimpy compared with New England skeeters.

I won't even broach the subject of black flies (the NH State Bird)...

You'd better believe it! NC mosquitos are driving me crazy! I lived in Florida (Orlando and Jacksonville) and never had bites like this!
