Calm bug bites with a banana peel. Peel banana and then gently rub the inside of the peel (not the yellow skin) directly on the bite. Banana peel is rich in enzymes that reduce swelling and instantly stop the itch of mosquito bites. Another folk remedy that works: a freshly sliced piece of onion.
Be bite-free with garlic! Eating one or two garlic cloves daily can make you unappetizing to mosquitoes, ticks and other bugs! Insects have an acute sense of smell and they are repelled by the smell of allicin, the compound that makes garlic stink.
