OK, so is this some kind of test? First the Japanese Beetles, then the near-drought, followed by enough rain to make me wanna trade in the F-150 for a canoe, NOW we've got the mother of all mosquito invasions going on!!! Even the poor dog got bitten, right on his rump. Talk about uncomfortable... :(
I've found that I either have to run (not stroll) with the dog, which is pretty hard in the humidity, or we just bolt to the closest fire hydrant. Most bug sprays make me feel like I've got a layer of hairspray (think AquaNet) on my skin, but now I see commercials for a new kind that's s'posed to feel powdery, or so they say... haven't found it at my local Pick N Save, but we don't have pine nuts, and don't get me started with Key Lime Juice. (The kid just points to the lime juice and says "that's all we got"...)

I use Avon's skin so soft, any of the products that have that in it. Sunscreen, spray type, lotion or just the old fashioned oil.
Must say though that the mosquitos have not been bad this year, I think the heat and low humidity has kept their breeding places dried out. That is the good thing I guess. Linda B from SC

Bounce Fabric Sheets. Tie one to your belt loop and one to the back of your hat. Or just stick it in the collar of your shirt. You won't have that nasty spray on your skin and you will smell nice too! skeeters stay away. I even tie them to the dogs' collars.
