So not worried. By the time I arrive there will be 25,000 sweet targets and I will be invisible to them.

anyone know of any essential oils that repel skeeters?

I found those bitey flies to be much worse than the skeeters. Terrible!

Try this, it works when i go camping in the woods. Get some lemon dish soap (joy, palmolive works best). Fill a plastic cereal bowl with some water and put 2-3 tablespoons of the lemon soap in the water and mix it up, but don't make it all bubbles. The blood suckers will be attracted to the lemony scent and soon as they drink it they die.
.....Then again, this is vibes and maybe it's a bad idea incase a spun out w00k (or who ever happens to be well seasoned) never notices the dead or drowning bugs, and drink it thinking it's some kind of funny looking cup with lemonade. :drinkbeer:

Have a great weekend ev1

Get a zapper raquet before you go!!! I know how time runs out when heading to the show but if you are anywhere near an Ocean Stat Job Lot buy one or three of these babies. Thank me there. Follow the zapping sound or the flashes at night to find me.
