Why oh why do I get eaten alive by mozzies, while my Hubby sleeps peacefully on beside me,?

Don't know if this will help but we found that by drinking a glass of orange juice every day or eating citrus fruit seems to reduce the number of bites. We now seem to be getting quite a few mozzies here at the shack on the hill and one of our dogs tends to get bitten quite a lot even by house flies. What we find helps our dog tribe is spraying pure lemon juice all over them. It doesn't seem to be sticky or mark the furniture and it does seem to work.
While walking around the empire with the dog I was just saying to the dog well at least the lemon juice is helping against the mozzies when the dog stopped, looked up and growled, my eyes followed and there sat on the wall between the two shacks ( we call it the courtyard ) was the biggest mozzie that I have ever seen. it was approx 2ft tall a huge beak and talons, which just spread it massive wings and took off with the greatest of ease, with the same ease of movement we turned and ran like bats out of hell in the opposite direction could both have qualified for the olympics.
