I was intrigued by a comment in a post aways back, saying its only the females/male mozzie that bites.
Here in Canada, when you visit the wonderful National Parks, you are given various pamphlets to read. One relates to bear encounters.
If you see a black bear approaching, drop to the ground and play dead. If you see a brown bear approaching, stand still, rear up as tall as you can, to intimidate the bear.
Who is going to stay long enough to decide what color it is, approaching at a fast lumber with its teeth bared?
Male or female, black or brown, you aint gonna win!
I am intrigued by the wonderful spelling ans grammar in some posts. Is this the new ways youngsters are taught in school now? Seriously intrigued, not being nasty! please dont get me wrong. I was with a teacher for many years, how things must have changed.

From the land of monster mozzies (Australia) to prevent mozzies biting, take Vitamin B6 starting at least 4 weeks before entering the danger zone. This makes your skin smell bad to mozzies and they won't bite - they will buzz, but they won't bite!
Second trick, if you're ever caught out somewhere without repellent (or haven't eaten your Vegemite or Marmite) then as soon as you can, take an antihistamine. This will stop the itching and swelling. I can guarantee this as it happened to me.
