Interesting, Paul, that the web article you refer to says nothing about
Vitamin B, only about other alternative methods.  So your statement that
"it's an urban legend" also is a bit lacking in discipline and validity!!

I have found that regular intake of Vitamin B has been quite effective in
discouraging mosquitoes both in tropical Australia and SE Asia.  While not a
scientific study, my experience has been backed up by several other
travellers we have discussed this with.
