When I was eating a lot of garlic, they stayed away from me as well. My DW ate a lot of sweets (still does) and gets chewed on by every mosquito from three counties, or so it seems.

Eat more garlic everyone.!

They also don't like overly obese people. They give off an offensive odor.

Really? Why is that? How about slightly obese people?

Mosquitoes love to bite me. I eat a fair amount of garlic and not a lot of sweets. I have tried making sure to eat plenty of garlic every day and it didn't help. Stirling is obese and doesn't eat a lot of sweets. He enjoys his garlic too and they bite him even more than they bite me.

Mosquitoes like me so much that friends like walking with me in mosquito areas because they get bitten less.

DH is the guy everyone likes to have at outdoor get togethers. He's a skeeter magnet, drawing them away from everyone else too. He's thin, eats no sweets, and enjoys a fair bit of garlic.

I should really have my daughter start eating garlic. Mosquitoes love her. Unfortunately her skin is so sensitive the bites get swollen up really bad.

Skeeter magnet is a great term. It's both me and Stirling. And yes, stand near Stirling when there are skeeters around.

Charlie, I had the same problem with Poo when he was small. Buy a bottle of Aloe Gel at your pharmacy and place a small dab on each bite. It stops the itching and helps prevents infection.
