My wife started not using perfume on holiday and spraying with Jungle Juice 3 years ago, since then very few problems. We also have a plug in repelant in the room.

Re Mosquitos,

I learnt a tip off TA several years ago and have never had a problem since with mosquitos, try Avon Skin so Soft it's a dry spray which you just spray on to your body, no need to rub in and it smells nice too, very effective believe me, I have just got some more for my trip to Kefalonia at the end of May from Amazon, whether or not the mozzies are about it's a great spray for putting the oils back into your skin after being in the sun.

Enjoy your holiday.

Hi all,

In reply to all previous replys,

Speaking as a traditional walking buffet for our unpopular flying friends, I have used Avon so soft with great success for the period of time between coming back from the beach/pool/ and early evening drinks on the balcony!

The reason being is it's not as harsh as the products mentioned below.

Once out for the evening I use a spray or two of "jungle formula max strength" and that seems to work great for me, however I have used boots equivalent and that seemed to work equally well.

Not sure about the habits of these little flying buggers but as a point of reference we normally holiday in Kefalonia in late July and mid September.

Hope this helps

There is mossies around now on some of the warmer days. Although not as big as in the summer.

But still give you a nip.

I agree with skin so soft from Avon.
