It was the worst year for us, it was horrible seeing the grandchildren getting up and being covered in bites, nothing seemed to work. Won't stop us going again next year, just hope there will be no repeat of this summer. It was still a great holiday.������

We have been coming to PP for nearly 20 years and at all different times of the year. I have never been bitten so badly despite using plugins in all rooms, nets,sprays and best quality repellents. I am looking forward to going home and I have never, ever said that before.

One of my family has suffered terribly in the past with mosquito bites. Last year she started taking vitamin B12 tablets for an unrelated condition. She has been out here in July and again for most of September and never been bitten.

I don't know if it is just coincidence but the NHS website does say that for some people it can be effective.

This year I purchased the electric zappers like you see in food shops available from the ferreterias ranging from around 30 to 50 euro depending on size have 1 in each bedroom and other areas including outside FANTASTIC . because they attract and kill the little devils NO BITES all summer for everybody who stayed and still the same now. Also no annoying buzzing in your ear when you are sleeping.
I have tried every form of repellent known to man over the years and this
is the only one that works don't repel kill
As an added bonus they attract and kill flies and any other flying insects. and never have to buy refills just switch them on and off as required

exactly when you use repellent they just keep moving round until they find a spot and get you. They cant do that when they fry and best bit you can hear them snapping hahahahahah (not a cruel person but Mozzies bring nothing to this world apart from misery so yes pleasure when I here them snap and crackle lol):

If you have a garden that you sit in, the pesky blighters will find a sheltered corner and wait until night to come out and getcha! I have a mossie spray that at early evening I generously spray plants, hedges and the like, which seems to work too.

The Electric zappers work outdoors also I have them in areas outside need to be kept out the rain. But they are fantastic

Ate out in Pollenša this evening and the restaurant was handing out mozzie sprays and citronella candles. We had a swarm of mosquitoes all around us!

I always find an excuse to send wife into bedroom first. Jokes aside, have just returned home. We took Boots Repel maximum strength and found it most effective. Very strong and had to apply outside on balcony to avoid fumes. We also sprayed it inside rooms around windows and under beds before going out. Worked well
