I grew up in a Mennonite household in Lancaster County, Pa and one of the things we are 'blessed' with is plenty of insects. Another blessing is the mint plant. Not only is it used to make meadow tea (the best tea ever) but if you crush up the leaves and apply the oil to insect bites, it takes care of the symptoms quickly. You can grow this yourself or check creek beds in your area. These plants love moist, shaded areas and finding them is pretty easy.
