Just got back from PP, well Saturday 9th actually. Got bitten on the last night. 3 on my right foot, ended up at the Dr and have been prescribed anti-biotics. Foot blew up like a balloon, don't think the flight home helped. Anyway I digress, I had been using a Tropical Forest insect repellant from Boots, which I presume worked well, (yep you guessed it, I forgot to use it on that last night). Won't forget next time.

I forgot my Spray in June and it is normally one of the first things I pack as I have quite a reaction to bites

I went to the Farmacia by Tamerells ( Very nice staff ) and bought something called I think Goibi ? It was Deet based but smelt pleasant and did the trick for me Would buy it again

For some reason we didn't take or use anti bite spray this year, didn't get bitten once.Unlike a previous year, covered in anti bite spray, plug ins etc, got sixty eight bites on one leg !

No mosquitos all year until the last couple of weeks - bitten more times that we can count - different as well - larger than normal and silent - no warning 'buzz'!
We do have a ground floor apt so we always get more but can usually combat them. Normal sprays, plug ins are not working. The rain has been very welcome but a whole years mozzies in one trip are not!
