Did not get bothered too much by mozzies on the weekend, just used Aeroguard roll on & some citronella candles, I had some coils I found in the garage but they must have been too old becasue they kept going out, they would smoulder for a few mins then just stop smoking.
For vitamin B to work you need to take mega doses of it, like about 1000mg daily for about 3 weeks before you would see any benefit. It is also recommended that you take it for some weeks before camping and during the camping trip as well. I can't remember if it is B6 or B12 that you should take.
I might also point out that it does not work for everyone and it appears there is no real evidence to say it really does work period...
And it is normally recommended for sandflies, not sure about mozzies.
It seems that some people have a natural immunity to sandflies and mozzies but those people are few and far between.
