SCIENTISTS are determined to even the score with mosquitoes by developing bug repellents using chemicals in human body odour that the insects hate.
They have isolated chemicals in the odour of people who don't get bitten and hope to use them to improve controls to prevent the spread of insect-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue and yellow fever in developing countries.
Oil of cedar, eucalyptus, pennyroyal, rosemary, goldenseal, tea tree oil, calendula, soybean, plus garlic and brewers yeast.
mosquitoes don't like B vitamins, in particular thiamine which is B1.
If you eat brown rice, brewers yeast, wheat germ, black strap molasses, or fish, these will supply you with B vitamins.
Or you can take a good vitamin B complex before your outing.
Avoid eating sweets, fruits such as bananas and all sweet fragrances as these can attract mosquitoes.
