The power of garlic?
My trip to the woods a couple of weeks ago was great fun for me and a veritable banquet for all the little biting things which live there. I came home happy but looking like a pin cushion.
I have just returned from three days in the same wood and as I sit here I am virtually bite free.
The difference? Garlic.
I read somewhere a while ago ( it may have been on here) that garlic deters the little beasties so for the time I was out I swallowed a clove every few hours to see if infusing my system with eau de garleec would do the trick. It seems to have worked, although I will have to try it a few more times before I'm sure.
Anyone else tried this or heard about it or can explain it?
The only problem is I now have breath akin to a bear's armpit.
