Baking Soda...make a paste with water cover bites as soon as possible. No itch or swelling! Another tried and true solution is a good quality mouthwash. Great antiseptic for bites and broken skin. It seals the area.

We built our patio in with timber framing studs all around the far edge of the patio, then covered on the outside of the studs with metal black gauze interrupted with 2 screen doors.

It does block a bit of the valued breeze but it has given us so much comfort specially for our grandchildren some of who are sensitive to Mozzie bites..

I still use the blower for the floor I just blow any rubbish bits out through the door and down the foot path, we never have Mozzies or Flies any more.
