A GREAT repellent is BOUNCE (in the orange box). It contains white oleander and mosquitoes HATE the smell. Tie one on you & you wonít be bothered by them. Wipe outside walls & surfaces like decks & cushion covers & youíll never see them. Donít use heavily perfumed shampoos, lotions, hairsprays or deodorants.They also LOVE dark colored clothes, so don't wear.
Hurt feelings or discomfort of any kind cannot be caused by another person. No one outside me can hurt me. Thatís not a possibility. Itís only when I believe a stressful thought that I get hurt. And Iím the one whoís hurting me by believing what I think. This is very good news, because it means that I donít have to get someone else to stop hurting me. Iím the one who can stop hurting me. Itís within my power. - Byron Katie
