Nothing sounds like summer more than the slap of a palm against skin as you chase a horde of tiny buzzing mosquitoes around yourself.
Several days before you take a camping or hiking trip into bug-filled territory, start eating garlic.
Have a clove or two every day.
As you sweat out the garlic odour, it repels many insects.
Maybe this is where the myth of garlic repelling bloodsuckers came from!
