Last year I visited our property in Northern California for 2 weeks. Despite using natural bug sprays, I left with 150 mosquito bites. I went back 2 weeks later to live there 6 months. I was only bit twice from yellow jackets, tho they took a chunk. Was thankful to run into a neighbor who gave me an old farmers trick. Eat 1 dill pickle/day.
Difficult to find without yellow #5 and other harmful ingredients. Unless you wanna buy a gallon of Vlassic for $3.99. I opted for Trader Joe's pure ingredients and small jar, smaller pickles for the same price. They were a godsend!
Tip for relieving is applying a warm-hot spoon against bites. It puts the fire out.
I'm tempted to try for fleas. In visiting a friend, her neighbors dog's fleas are attacking only me.
Being a vegetarian 40+ years has its rewards, bites/stings aren't one of them.
