Lets hope we dont get elephant mosquitos they only bite you on the trunk.

Only arrived on Saturday but have both been bitten quite a lot since then. Does anyone know if you can buy a plug in device somewhere in the port as although we have kept windows/doors closed we are still being bitten during the night

Definitely more out at the moment because of all the rain along with the weather still being warm. Need a cold snap to kill them all off - preferably just cold for a couple of hours whilst in a restaurant though!

As has been said above you can buy the plug-ins at Eroski, i always use one in the bedroom and it works well. As you are not here for a long time it would be cheaper for you to get a big can of spray in the Chinese emporium, give the place a really good spray before you go out at night and keep the doors/windows closed, this works just as well . We have had a few bites in the last week but that has not been at home, we have started using repellent wipes before we go out, not had to do that for a few years now. I think there are more mozzies about because of the recent rain and high temperatures .

I use the "After Bite" pen on bites, they are gone in no time.

Another tip ~ do NOT go out at night with strong perfume on! No matter what it is, it WILL attract mozzies! Except that old favourite anti mozzie spray on by Avon evidently, cant remember offhand what it was or even if they still do it ~ someone will know no doubt!
