I have always been a mosquito magnet, and get horrible allergic reactions to the bites. Skin so soft is hard to get hold of here, so I'm saving the dregs for special occasions. This past week, I twice found a mosquito in my apartment, swiftly despatched each time. But when I looked for the inevitable bites, I couldn't fine any. This seemed impossibly lucky but now I know the reason - I recently started taking a Vitamin B complex tablet once a day. To say I'm overjoyed is an understatement!

I agree. And Brewer's Yeast is high in B vitamins. I used to put it in the dog's food and it repelled mosquitoes from her.

VITAMIN B FOR MOSQUITOES

I used to attract Mosquitoes. I had Banana Trees in Kona with big leaves that held rainwater at the leaf stem. When I went near the trees in the rainy season, they would swarm all around me. I used skin so soft to repel them. That works if you put it on your skin every day. I was told about vitamin B and started taking a full complex of vitamin B, two tablets every day. That stopped the Mosquito bites. Some would swarm near, and occasionally one would land. But no bites. After a while, I reduced to one tablet every day. I went about ten years without one bite taking complete vitamin B every day. The only exception was when I was moving recently, I received a mosquito bite before I moved, and after I moved, I received a second bite. Vitamin B is a stress vitamin, and the move was more stressful for me.

Our granddaughter came to Hawaii once a year during the summer, and immediately she was attacked around the Banana plants. We gave her two vitamin B a day for three days. After that, we reduced it to one pill per day. She wasn't bothered again until she went home to Tennessee. After a few bites at home, she started taking vitamin B, successfully deterring Mosquitos.

I know a few tests that have been made discounting the effect. It has worked for me. Good luck.
