Some of the Agents have been having trouble with mosquitoes during patrols. I thought it was some kind of joke when the Medic told me. The men are equipped to take down almost any kind of HST, including most blood-sucking varieties. However, one cannot stake or tazer a gnat and Gates is now excused certain duties because of a number of infected mosquito bites on his right shoulder.

Insects never touch Agent Murphy. When I debriefed him on the subject he claimed that the very best mosquito repellent you can use is Avon Skin-So-Soft bath oil mixed about half and half with alcohol. After empirical testing it seems that he is correct; mosquitoes actively avoid skin smoothed with that mixture.

I really would like to know how he found out how effective it is. Why did he mix alcohol and bath oil in the first place? Does the perfume that he adds to the mixture really increase the effect? Why was he wearing Obsession, anyway?
