Can anyone tell me how bad mosquitoes are at the moment? No matter what I use (including sleeping under a net) I end up visiting the hospital, last year I had 168 bites.
Was in lindos June and July never had a bite, it's normally early season when they are about when it's damp and starting to warm up. It may be different where your staying if there is a lot of vegetation. When I've been in may had several.
I stayed from 1st - 10th august & didn’t get bitten once
Fingers crossed then, I always go end of August beginning of September and get eaten alive 😕
Go mid September. Never been bitten, they just like going in my ears and buzzing around. Till we get a plug in from the local shop.
Plug--or two-- from the local shop, burning coils if you are sitting on your balcony and Jungle Formula from Wilkinsons--the super strong sort--are what keep them away from my other half. It really annoys him that I NEVER get bitten--must smell 'orrible or something!
I always used to get eaten alive, but a few years ago, someone suggested lemon juice and it works for me.
Take vitamin B 4 week before you go . I was like you now not one bite
We arrived back home last Tuesday, I always get bitten yet all week managed bite free....until we got back to the airport! Ended up with 17! 8 being just on one leg 😫 they’re still really itchy now nearly a week on
If you buy Vitamin B1 from Pharmacy and take 1 tablet with every meal they wont touch you. Something to do with the yeast extract in it. Must be B1 not just Vitamin B. If you are on any other meds check no contra indications with Pharmacist first. Hope you have a great holiday
