Apart from killing them one by one when they land on you, here's a better idea: . Give them a medium such as a water supply in which to reproduce. When the eggs hatch, pour the water out. I also use a spray bottle filled with about 25% soap solution with water to kill the adults. It makes their… wings stick to their bodies and makes them unable to fly. . Well you could drown them . hit them with your hand . crush them . don't kill them just put bug spray on . if you have a pet spider you can feed the spider the mosquito That's all i could think of and i hope this helps you (MORE)
Answer . Use Off! bug spray or some other sort of insect repellent before going outside and stay away from areas that may have small 'ditches' or crevices that rainwater may accumulate in (which is the primary location for mosquito breeding). There is no surefire way to eliminate every bite, short… of maybe staying in an airtight house.. Answer . Seeing as you posted this in alternative medicine, I must point out that you must look at the ingredients of what you place on your skin. If you wouldn't eat it, then don't put it on your skin, as it does sink through. There are many carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) in insect repellents. Try a Citronella candle or torch. . Answer . All natural repellents can be made from certain plants, and there are sonic repellent systems too. (MORE)

Some of the Preventive Measures are : Avoiding alcohol before driving prevents road traffic accidents. The use of remediation therapy for drink driving offenders will reduce the number that reoffend. A far more extensive use of random breath testing , accompanied by a high level of publicity will… lead to a reduction in injuries. To be most effective breath testing should be intensive and applied to everybody at a checkpoint and not depend on "due cause". Strategies that increase the use of seat belts or child restraints will result in fewer injuries. Stricter enforcement of speed limits will result in fewer injuries. The overall contribution of speed to accidents is not known but is widely quoted to be one third of all fatalities. Roadside guardrails (crash barriers) and crash cushions will reduce injury severity. Safer design of roads and roadside environments will result in fewer injuries. (MORE)

It may but even vitamin B1 alone can do the trick. It is most efficient when used topically such as in the numerous natural insect repellent patches on the market now. A typical adult only needs about 75 mg of it if used topically. But much more would be required if taken in the form of a pill becau…se much of it will be filtered out by digestive acid and the liver. Also taking an oral supplement takes hours before that vitamin "scent" starts seeping out your pours, whereas a topical can start working in one hour and last 24 hours. Basically it works by masking your normal human scent and makes it harder for mosquitoes to find you. (MORE)

You could try bathing the dog on a regular basis, or taking antihistamine or other anti allergy medications (not a solution for everone, research the pros and cons of this), or try wearing long sleeves and gloves to play with the dog.
