The best way to deter them is to wear no deodrant, perfume, aftershave etc, also putting 2 or 3 drops of Citronella oil in your bath water helps to deter them.

We did all that in Egypt and it worked, then one evening thought I'd chance it and put a little perfume on...and a bugga bit me on the arm, ended up having to put an antibiotic cream and steroid cream on it, trust me to get bitten by mosquito with nasty germs! Rolling Eyes

Rolling Eyes Or you could order some Skin so Soft body lotion by Avon as used by the Royal Marines and S.A.S. among others Shocked Shocked Yes you heard me correctly,no not to keep their Hands and bodies feeling all nice and soft and smelling oh so nice Laughing Laughing Laughing it is widely used by them as a really good insect repellent Wink maybe because it contains among other things an oil called Citronella whistle and by the way the recipe above would be even better if you bunged some in that to Citronella oil that is.cool2 cool2

I always remember my mum saying to me

"Now then mummies little soldier,
remember that any insect or spider you kill
may have little babies waiting at home"

I've never knowingly killed anything since...
