“Bite Me”

Use Scotch Tape or Nail Polish to Relieve an Itchy Mosquito Bite

“Bite me” is what you’ll be saying to the mosquitoes when you try this new trick. I read about using scotch tape on an itchy mosquito bite to stop the itching. So I’ve been experimenting with it the last few days. (The mosquitoes will carry you away now if you’re in the woods – like today at Red Wing.)

Putting a little piece of tape over the bite does seem to stop the itching. Maybe it’s a placebo effect, but it’s cheap, easy and doesn’t seem to do any harm.

Hahahaha, same as Lisa. Now we're all going to be wandering around with scotch tape pieces hanging off of us. :)

Yes it is funny, Last nite I had 4 pieces of tape on my arm. Wasn't itchy but a little weird.
