Mosquito REPELLENTS

#1
HI ALL,

I Know I have asked this before but I have tried everything that there is to try in a chemist to stoop these f**** biting me including plug in stuff for the room and nothing works. I am looking for advise on natural repellents that will stop the mosqietos biting me in the first place and I know someof you have already advised me on some things that you can get in the chwemist but I have tried everything. I will try anything at all once ot works. This is a problem which can ruin someones holiday I should Know I had to get the doctor twice last year.Thanks in advance for your help

as well as the AVON Skin so soft oil spray that i have told you about, you could also try this tip... buy some pure peppermint oil, put in a squirty bottle with some water & spray this all over, it makes you smell like extra strong mints, but the Mossies hate it!! also Limon cologne.

Hi Viva

I have done loads of different ones in the wall and none of them have worked so I am waiting on a miracle I think. I will live in hope

Hi!
Mozzies hate tea tree oil! I always take the 'teatree and mint source' shower gel and deodorant and up to now have never been bit. You can buy it from any supermarket and they even have a website! It doesn't make you smell funny so don't worry!
good luck! Tracy

:evil: :x 8) :shock: :idea: :oops: :twisted:
If there was only one mosquito in the whole of turkey it would get a plane/dolmus/taxi andfind me and bite me. Vivakusadasi if there is nothing that i am more sure of is that every f****** mosquito in turkey is madly in love with me and i wish they werent. Any way thanks for all the advice everyone and now I only have 2 weeks to go and I am so excited.

Bye for now

mecanic beats chemistry

hi flynns,

the best protection or even the only one is: don't let them reach your skin... so, in nighttime use a moskito net and in the evening use long armed shirts, socks and long trousers... wear something with a net over your head. That doesn't look cool but will help the most...
here in germany we have a product called "Autan Family" that scores best in several tests but it lasts only approx. 5 hours and you have to use a lot.But it works last year when we were in Cyprus...

greetings

Hi rincewind,
Thanks for the advice but I have tried there products before and still didnt work for me unfortunately. You have a very unusual name is it real or just a pseudoname. Have you been to Kusadasi before you should go the germans are great beer drinkers like the irish. Again thanks for thye advice

Take care

mosquito,s

i don.t if i mentioned it on this sight if your living in turkey ,go to garden centre and get a plant called melissa . i can,t remember the full name, it apparantly grows like clematis and ivy. i havn.t tried it yet. but i was told when you go into bars and restaurant..i was told that it was the plant they put on the tables. i think the locals call it "megri" can anybody confirm this , but when i come over in may i wiil try it anyway because last october was unbearable, but i think that is because . people that was suppose to clean our pool did.nt. and that is a breeding ground, also anywere wet or damp they love it. good luck with the mossies cheers jonno.;)

A lot of the restaurants & bars have Basil (the herb) called Reyhan or Fesleğen in Turkish dotted around the outside (also found in & around turkish homes.



I never really noticed this planted around Kusadasi, but i did see it when i went out of the tourist areas, planted in big pots outside Lokantas.

i heard that vitamin b tablets and garlic tablets for a few months before is meant to work. its meant to leave your skin/blood with a smell that they dont like but is undetecable to the human nose. worth a shot

By taking 2 to 4 Brewers Yeast tablets a day for about 3 weeks before you go and while you are there has always worked for me, works the same way charbarrit said, the mozzies can smell it in your blood:)

i very rarely get bitten while im in Kusadasi, but im not sure if that is beacuse i cover myself in the avon skin so softy spray, or that there just arnt many mossies about.
