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

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
