Eat Burritos To Beat Mosquitos

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (Wireless Flash) -- If you want to prevent mosquito bites, bite into spicy sausage burritos.

That's the tasty advice of Sebastian Andino, a natural remedies expert in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, who says the spices found in Mexican food -- such as garlic, onions and peppers -- put out an odor that drives mosquitoes away from your skin.

Other types of spicy foods, such as Italian sausage or Indian curries, are also good repellents, but Andino says the burrito is an especially effective delivery system -- and it's much tastier than insect repellents containing DEET.

Andino also suggests mosquito haters leave off cologne and perfume, which make mosquitoes attack like the plague.
