Bug Spray

My girls and I get welts when Mosquitos bite us. I have been using bug spray but really don't like to. My pediatrician even told me they don't recommend it for anyone. Has anyone found anything that works well and is safe?

      Wear darker clothing, eat less sugar, stay out of the grass.. That's what we're doing. Citronella plants, the bug light things that zap them, they help a little.. Even with bug spray we get bit, so we just limit time outside and try to stay out th grass so we don't disturb them. My son is getting horrible welts that last for weeks-it's the modified mosquitos Florida let loose last year..

      Put some vinegar on a cotton ball an dab it on there. Don't know why but it helps. My mom used to but 'itch away' sticks-about twice as long as chapstick. That always helped.
