|Mosquitoes wait for me here.|
The old adage, "You're damned if you do, and damned if you don't," comes to mind. I detest dousing myself with DEET, but that's the only reliable repellent when it comes to mosquitoes. I have even tried some mosquito repellent apps on my iPhone. They emit high frequency sounds that supposedly repel the pests, and I haven't been bitten lately, but I don't want to play Russian Roulette with mosquitoes either. It probably only takes one bite to send one to the ER.
