Re: Fw: Mosquitoes now anthrax immunity


Yeah, but what is the alternative, if you contract it? Life has no guarantees.

I have no idea what guarantee they offer with Anthrax vaccination. Doubt
they publish it either.

Just out of curiosity, does antrhax vaccination guarantee immunity?? I'm
just wondering because I am among the 10% of folks who will never, no
matter how many series of injections they put me through, be immune to
hepatitis...I've had the full series 3 times and still not immune. Not a
good thing for a nurse...so I had all of my children immunized as babies
just in case I should contract hepatitis through an exposure at work.

Mosquitoes&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; I hope something is
helpful. When I was 8-9<br>&gt; years old we spent most of
one&lt;br&gt;&gt; summer helping my gramma with the<br>&gt; cattle at
pasture in the mountains. Best&lt;br&gt;&gt; grass was in marshy<br>&gt;
meadows, but you couln't leave them in one place or&lt;br&gt;&gt; they'd
destroy<br>&gt; it. Every week or so we'd go round them all up &amp;
move them&lt;br&gt;to&lt;br&gt;&gt; a<br>&gt; different meadow. Luckily
they were used to following the sound of<br>&gt; the&lt;br&gt;&gt; bells
we put on several of the big mama cows. So once we got<br>&gt;
those&lt;br&gt;moving,&lt;br&gt;&gt; the others mostly just fell in
behind. They were<br>&gt; barely smart enough to&lt;br&gt;&gt; trust us
to take them to greener pastures.<br>&gt; To get to my point, that
first&lt;br&gt;&gt; summer the sk


eeters thought I was<br>&gt; delicious. head to toe itchy
bumps.&lt;br&gt;After&lt;br&gt;&gt; about a month though,<br>&gt; I
developed an immunity &amp; the few bites I got didn't&lt;br&gt;&gt;
itch or swell<br>&gt; at all. Lasted the rest of that &amp; subsequent
summers when I&lt;br&gt;&gt; had<br>&gt; high exposure to mosquitos.
When I went away to college, my<br>&gt; exposure&lt;br&gt;&gt; dropped
&amp; so did my immunity, darn it.&lt;br&gt;&gt; ----- Original<br>&gt;

Judy,&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; Thanks<br>&gt; for the list. I wonder if the
clear (or as I've heard<br>&gt; it&lt;br&gt;referred&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
to, &quot;white&quot;) vanilla works better than the brown.<br>&gt; It
is available here.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; Costs more but is necessary if
your recipe<br>&gt; needs to stay white-white&lt;br&gt;&gt;
rather&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; than off-white.&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt; &gt; I'm already taking doses of B6 and B12
for CTS, maybe I should toss<br>&gt; in&lt;br&gt;the&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
B1.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; Kitty&lt;br&gt;&gt;

From a<br>&gt; friend of a friend in Alaska, maybe bigger skeeters
than&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt; Minnesota.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; Some
suggestions we've already seen, couple of<br>&gt; different ones. I

can&lt;br&gt;&gt; wipe&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; on&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt; more every hour or so. Not sure how that would work in<br>&gt;
fierce&lt;br&gt;humidity,&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; maybe&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt; mixing it with alcohol would<br>&gt; be better then.&lt;br&gt;&gt;

From:Tami&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; It's about that time folks - so
thought I'd send out<br>&gt; this&lt;br&gt;reminder!!!!&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; OK, mosquitos... prepare to be<br>&gt;
repelled!!!!!&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; Use Bounce
Fabric Softener Sheets...Best<br>&gt; thing ever used in&lt;br&gt;&gt;

&gt; Bob, a fisherman, takes one vitamin B-1<br>&gt; tablet a day
April&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; through October . He said it works. He
was<br>&gt; right. Hasn't had a&lt;br&gt;mosquito&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
bite&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; in 33 years. Try<br>&gt; it. Every one he
has talked into trying it works on&lt;br&gt;&gt; them.&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; Vitimin B-1( Thiamine Hydrochloride 100
mg.)&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; If you<br>&gt; eat
bananas, the mosquitos like you, - something about<br>&gt;
the&lt;br&gt;banana&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; oil&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; as
your body processes it. Stop eating<br>&gt; bananas for the summer and
the&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; mosquitos will be much less<br>&gt;
interested.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; This is
going to floor you, but one of the<br>&gt; best insect
repellents&lt;br&gt;&gt; someone&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; found (who is
in the woods<br>&gt; every day), is Vick's Vaporub.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; Plant marigolds around<br>&gt; the yard,
the flowers give off a smell that&lt;br&gt;bugs&lt;br&gt;&gt;
do&lt;br&gt;&


gt; &gt;<br>&gt; not&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; like, so plant some in that
garden also to help ward off<br>&gt; bugs without&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
using&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; insecticides.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &quot;Tough guy&quot; Marines who
spend a great deal of time &quot;camping out&quot;<br>&gt;
say&lt;br&gt;&gt; that&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; the&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;
very best mosquito repellant you can<br>&gt; use is Avon Skin-So-Soft
bath oil&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; mixed&lt;b<br>&gt;<br>&gt; r&gt;<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt; about half and half with alcohol.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; One of the<br>&gt; best natural insect
repellants that I've discovered is made&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>&gt;
from&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; the clear real vanilla. This is the pure
Vanilla that is<br>&gt; sold in&lt;br&gt;Mexico.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
It&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; works great for mosquitoes and<br>&gt; ticks,
don't know about other insects.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; When
all else fails--get a frog&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; Fight West
Nile.....pass this<br>&gt; along to all your friends in
skeeter&lt;br&gt;&gt; land!!!&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
