Bloody Mosquitos
#1
So. After a brilliant afternoon in the local woods yesterday I have far more mozzie bites than I can ever remember; including one that makes my left leg look like it has a kneecap both sides.... :o

They are sooooooo itchy that I woke up a few times in the night.

Does anyone have a magic repellent they can recommend? I have tried various sprays before, however the latest advice is to take garlic tablets - this keeps them away apparently & I wondered if anyone else had tried them or has something better to recommend?

Jungle Formula?

I don't know that much but I think you are looking for a spray which has a high deet content? Undecided

Yes, DEET is the only thing to keep the buggers at bay, don't get it on your lips though, you'll be numb.

I tried the Avon spay last year after getting multiple bites at Blean one night, I always use it now & have yet to get one bite whilst using it, great stuff, does smell of old ladies though!

Ride faster and stop breathing, they are attracted to your carbon dioxide. Only bite you when you stop.

I too pull a demented grimace when trying to be rad. This does not sit well in photos of me because I'm about as rad as toast AND I'm pulling a funny face
