Well, they can't swim, so the longer you stay in the less you'll get bit.

i like the fact that it is spring fed so its nice and cold, if you stay in for an hour you get out your chilled to the bone and it helps cool you off for a few hours

There is a lot of tannin in the water, the stuff that makes it tea colored, and that affects mosquitos but usually in their development cycle, not so much as a deterrent to getting bit. But the water and tannin may counter perfumes, deodorants, etc. that may attract mosquitos.

I've got a Marine buddy who eats match heads to keep mosquitoes away. One or two and your good for a day. You're eating sulfur though, and I don't know how bad it is for you, but it works like a charm he says. I've never tried it..

WTF? I am off to google this. My hubby is a former Marine!! I will have to ask him. That is crazy~ Would probably work though. Stay tuned I will have a full report shortly.
