1. You are most at risk for mosquito bites - particularly in the islands - as the sun lowers; use extra caution at dusk.
2. Pay attention under the tables when eating in Southeast Asia. Mosquitoes would love to enjoy you as a meal while you eat your own.
3. Wear earth tones, khaki, or neutral clothing while trekking. Studies show thatmosquitoes are more attracted to bright clothing.
4. If staying in a place with a mosquito net, use it! Check for holes and apply DEET to any breeches. Do the same for any broken window screens around your accommodation.
5. Mosquitoes are attracted to body odor and sweat; stay clean to avoid attracting unnecessary attention from mosquitoes and clean travel mates.
6. Female mosquitoes normally feed on flower nectar when not trying to reproduce - avoid smelling like one! Sweet-smelling fragrances in soap, shampoo, and lotion will attract more biters.
