I don't know who wrote this, it was sent to me via Email.

OK, mosquitoes... prepare to be repelled!!!!!

Use Bounce Fabric Softener Sheets ... Best thing ever used in Louisiana.
just wipe on and go ... Great for Babies.

Bob, a fisherman, takes one vitamin B-1 tablet a day April through
October.
He said it works. He was right. Hasn't had a mosquito bite in 33 years.
Try it. Everyone he has talked into trying it says it works on them.
Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine Hydrochloride 100 mg.)

If you eat bananas, the mosquitoes like you - something about the banana
oil as your body processes it.  Stop eating bananas for the summer and
the mosquitoes will be much less interested.

This is going to floor you, but one of the best insect repellents
someone found (who is in the woods every day) is Vick's Vaporub.

Plant marigolds around the yard, the flowers give off a smell that bugs
do not like, so plant some in that garden to help ward off bugs without
using insecticides.  P.S. Marigolds planted near tomatoes do something
to keep bugs off the plants.

"Tough guy" Marines who spend a great deal of time "camping out" say
that the very best mosquito repellant you can use is Avon Skin-So-Soft
bath oil mixed about half and half with alcohol. [Jenny's note - I mix
it 50-50 with baby oil.  Much less drying than alcohol, and smells
better too. And the mosquitoes DO NOT like it!]

One of the best natural insect repellants that I've discovered is made
from the clear real vanilla. This is the pure Vanilla that is sold in
Mexico.  It works great for mosquitoes and ticks, don't know about other
insects.

When all else fails--get a frog

I've heard that moth balls work really well. My father-in-law uses them around the pool, and he says that he hasn't had a problem since putting a few out.
My husbands uncle takes moth balls with him when he goes fishing (both on land or in a boat). He also says they work great.

You know what works great with mosquitos?  You can buy these little electric wrist bands that relese a noise the same frequency as their natural predetor, the dragonfly.  I use one every time I go backpacking.
