    I was a bridesmaid with a face like a pizza having been midged  the night before.

    Take Brewers Yeast tablets daily. Allegedly the smell puts off bitey things. Sorry I have no empirical evidence of this.

    Brewers yeast and jbl and something from Avon  - is it that stuff with the great smell of brute. If so, I'd rather get bit.

    Brewers yeast doesn't work. I've tried it.image The Avon stuff is actually quite a pleasant smell and stops you looking like a pizza! Needs must when the critters drive B3.

    The Avon stuff really works. I was a real Midge Magnet and swelled up horribly with pustules lasting for days until I got Avon's Skin so Soft Lotion.
