Had some bloke trying to flog those suites at the fishing club for about $35 each. I find it hard to believe those flimsy looking things would put a mosquito off when the sods will bite you through a fishing shirt rated at SPF50 like it wasn't there. They dont cover your face and hands either, so unless its mid summer I prefer good old king gee. Lets see them bite through that!
haha i find my self wearing my work clothes fishing more often because it helps with the mozzies on night trips. go the king gees lol

I live at Mooloolaba, and in some afternoons the sandfries/ midges just come out of the grass. itchy legs.............more.
I tried RID pump spray , it works....
But yesterday I sprayed some on and my inside elbows came up in whelps...... 
My mate said his misses used to put some on his dog and said it was safe.......

I was looking at the big whelps on my inner arms , read the label, it said if this product irritated the skin, discontinue it's use........... and get a refund???
Anyway I went to the RID website and  read the FAQ , very interesting.
http://www.rid.com.au/faq.htm

It explains how you don't need to apply it to all your body as the way it works,  you put it on and it evaporates and forms a cloud around your body to protect you.........

About animals, a lot of horse and dog owners use it, rub it on their ears, and it protects the animal, don't rub it on their paws as they lick it off and they can be poisoned to a minor degree.

You need something.................
And even explains the DEET effect on plastic......  maybe not good to rub against mono .

The Hawaiian natives eat raw garlic, a few cloves a day, and I've heard something comes out of their skin to repel mossies........................
maybe the mossies smell their breath.....

I was just reading an article in 4X4 Australia oct 2010 by Ron Moon, called
Fight the bites!
He said a few sate government health depts put out special warnings after the floods for mosquito borne viruses like Ross Rv, Barmer Forrest and a new one Kunjin.
He recommends a Deet spray, loose fitting clothing light ,coloured, and don't forget  the kids...

bottom line.
Only bring home good memories and photos, not a unplesant virus, that could you last years.

You can borrow my brother-in-law (for a small fee)

His nick name should be ‘mozzie coil’, just place him down the back of the boat and he keeps the mozzies and sandies away from me, only downside is he bitches about the bities.

Well I feel left out. I'm completely allergic to every type of insect repellant including all the natural organic hippie alternatives.

I'm pretty lucky when every one else is getting bitten I usually don't. Sometimes in extreme circumstances I will use dettol and baby oil, but it doesn't work very well.

Just dont do what i did . waited untill it got dark and picked up the bloody sun screen and applied all over.  After about an hour of being bitten i figured out what i had done.

Took a tube of  "The Locals" Sandfly & Mozzie Stuff to Fiordland last month , worked well on the kiwi sandflies.  Made in WA ,  I  bought it  from a local tackle store.

Permethrin is the go if you want to treat your clothing or insect mesh, its available as a wash and  is deadly to insects who avoid it,the downside is it slowly degrades in sun or water. My second line of defence is Rid or Bushman which is twice as potent as Rid

I think it was discussed on an earlier post where a mate, in desperation tried various leaves crunched up while we were on a scrubby river bank.

He found that Lantana leaves worked.  Always try the local shrubbery but avoid the stinging nettle, hey.

Thats odd about lantana leaves because lantana scrub is usually laden with the biting bastards.
