1 doctor agrees

In brief: Maybe not

I heard years ago that taking b1 makes us taste bad to mosquitos and can reduce the number of bites especially in children.
I do not know about sand flies. I got an email saying put some pennies in a baggy of water and hang that near where you will l be and it from the pennies are too much for them.
