How To Prevent Mosquito Bites

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

 

I was wondering if any of you had some tips on preventing mosquito bites? Whenever I go to Jamaica, I get eaten alive!!!!!! Last year was really bad...I get a reaction every time I get bitten, and the bite swells up, and starts to weep. I've used creams, but they don't make the bites disappear, they just relieve the itchiness.

 

My big concern is, that my Wedding dress is tea-length and my legs will be showing, don't really want to have big red swollen legs. I'd really appreciate any advice on preventing mosquito bites, or how you can make them disappear fast!!!

 

Thanks :-) :-) :-)

Bug spray with deet is going to be your best defence. Doesn't smell great, but does the job!

I agree! Not much out there that prevents them. Somebody told me to take a bounce sheet and run it over your skin. For whatever reason they don't like bounce sheets! (go figure!) I honestly don't know if that works or not.

 

Good luck!

I worried about this same issue. My WC says she will get a few bottles of OFF the water resistant kind for my self and the guests as well as lighting citronella candles for tea lights and citronella tiki torches around my glass marquee. Due to my location of a private beach and with all that water where mosquitoes tend to congregate more, she said it will work. Try tiki torches with citronella oil if your venue is outdoors.

Thanks for all the tips!! I'll see if I can get the hotel to provide citronella candles, don't really want to drag them over from Ireland with me.

Off with deet will be the best bet! I'm from the south and mosquitos are fierce here! The best thing is off with deet hands down!

I just got back from a site visit and yes, they can get bad with rainy season. Not sure when your wedding is, but I would suggest packing Off for your guests for any activity on the beach- it will help with Mosquitos and Sand fleas.

My wedding is in mid-March - hoping it won't be too bad :)  I'll put that on my OOT bags just in case, though!


Thank you!

A friend of mine was in the Gulf War back in the day and he got some powerful stuff used by the military in the Middle East and he said that was the strongest and craziest stuff he's ever used.

I asked him for the name to see if I could find it on line.

If he's able to send me the info I will post it here.

 

Apparently it's amazing
