You're on to something John. I married a girl from Tangier Island, VA. I was from Michigan. When we'd visit the island; mosquitos ate me alive and hardly bothered her. We eventually moved back to MI, and the mosquitos ignored me and attacked her. We wondered if it was just our imagination until I found a magazine article in the doctors office that backed up our theory. Neither one of us were into garlic back then. Now we live in IL, and the mosquitos think we both taste delicious.
