Jun 3rd 2010 4:17PM Here's some advice from a professional woodsman; i got this when I worked as a landing rat in a timber operation. Mosquitoes are attracted by smell, which is how DEET works, by blocking their smellers. Vitamin B1, thiamin, changes your odor, ever so slightly, to make them think you're not worthy of a bite. You may notice the smell of it in your unrine, it sheds quite quickly. Also, quit eating bananas during mosquito season. Bananas put a smell in your sweat that attracts mosquitoes.
PS. Only female mosquitoes bite -- go figure...
