Shotgun is what you need. The only language the little blighters understand!

My wife seems to invite every biting insect within a ten mile radius. Still, at least that means they don't come after me. I read somewhere that the evil Scottish midge is attracted to people who give off more CO2. Maybe mozzies are the same?

You may be able to buy a machine that gives off mozzie sex pheromones. It attracts the little sods in and then drowns them. I know there is a midge version.

I'm not on Facebook I can see the pics but how do I make one? I've got a coke bottle here, is it a simple case of cutting it and slotting the neck into the base?

Pure neem oil mixed with a distilled water carrier, its the best repellent you will ever use. Had 2 weeks in the jungle with my 5 year old and he didn't get a single bite of any sort. Makes you smell like a yeasty marmite monster though.
