How Bad Can These Bites Be?
I used to have to be very careful as if I got a bite on my knee, one on my ankle, and one anywhere else on the same leg, I would come out in blisters all over it and it would swell up with septicaemia. This has only happened to me three times in my life.
What Can I Do Stop Insects Biting Me?
I have heard that eating plenty of garlic and/or brewers yeast will keep biting insects away, as it makes your blood unattractive to them. If true, that is probably a better method of solving the problem than using anti-bug sprays. I have found I am not alone in my conviction that they actually attract the things rather than repel them!
