Thanks for the hair spray tip, Matt76. A lady on another forum claimed that she removed lice nits (eggs) from her children’s hair by using hair conditioner as a solvent for the “glue” that attaches them. And I should try soap with lemon/eucalyptus, whirlybird. Sounds like it smells good and fresh, too.

An additional note: I’ve seen people in India with elephantiasis–huge swollen legs with thickened skin. Caused by worms in the lymph system–also spread by mosquitoes. Ugh! Another reason to hate mosquitos…

I should mention mosquito coils, which almost everyone burns in Alaska. Not 100% protection, but cuts down on the numbers from thousands to mere hundreds…;)
