What can I eat that will repel mosquitoes?


Answer by  Beth54 (53)

My mother always told me growing up that eating a small clove of garlic a day will repel mosquitoes naturally. Although it also has a tendency to repel your spouse, family and friends. The trick is that you have to eat the clove of garlic raw and it usually takes a week for results.

It's not what you should eat, but what you should avoid, to keep away mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are attracted to glucose in the blood, so you should avoid sugary foods.

Having vegetables and garlic will keep them far away from you in hot summer since these things will cause special smell,in addition vitamin B also has this kind of function.

Try to eat a lot of fruits. Avoid sugary snacks or diary products such as chocolate milk or icecream. You would also be better served by eating dates (they usually come packaged at the grocery store). Also, drink plenty of water as this will also help prevent or repel mosquitos.
