mosquitoes are really bad around these parts this year. it's been really wet and hot so far this summer and they are thick. they really make early season bow hunting suck
You can try gargling and then brushing your teeth with baking soda before you go hunting to help with breath. Avoid spicy foods or strong foods, especially things like subs, hamburgers, pizza, tacos. Eat something natural like an apple.
And, like Hilltop said, chances are they are going to smell if they are downwind. On the other hand, I have had deer feed for 20-30 minutes directly under my tree stand or within 10 yards and not smell me, even in the evening when the air is descending. That's even in warm weather when I worked up a sweat going up the tree in a climber.
Sawyer makes a permethrin based product that you can treat your clothes with that is odorless and lasts for several washes.
Be careful with DEET products if you wear synthetic clothing. It can stain or damage your high dollar hunting duds...
I went through this whole process last year after being exsanguinated on a scouting trip. I did the research and settled on the Sawyer product and treated all my clothes. Right after I finished I heard from a well known guide in Wyoming that the mosquitoes would not likely be a problem come September. He was right. Didn't see a single mosquito on our hunt.
This was at 11000 feet in Colorado.
Hope that helps.
Permethrin works for ticks and mosqs (some), but you can't put it on your skin. Nor can you spray it on your clothes while they are on your body. I also never leave the house without Permethrin on my clothes. We have seed ticks (turkey mites) and if you get into those, you will regret it. Permethrin is the ONLY thing that works with them. Good Luck!!

I have unscented cutter backwoods on now from softball games and there is definitely a smell to it.
