Even my mosquito bites have mosquito bites! I am so itchy that I want to use a straight razor to scratch with! My MIL told me to put rubbing alcohol on them, but I know that will sting and I'm a chicken. Will have to give the deodorant a try (on the bites, that is!) I feel so bad for all the people who have been posting about the gnats and flies and mosquito swarms. I heard there is a mosquito plant or citronella geranium out there that works great for repelling mosquitoes. Might have to hang that around the coop, once the DH and the carpenter friend get it built. I keep threatening to keep the chickens in the bathtub if they don't get moving on this. My chicks are coming August 2-4! Hope you're feeling better soon!
