Help. Is it just me or do the mosquitos seem worse than normal. I usually get one or 2 when I'm over here but I look like I've been attacked top to bottom 

 Any suggestions for the best deterant greatly appreciated and treatment after they've gotten you 😔😔

Most chemists, Domti and the Chinese shops sell citrus cologne for about a euro for a litre bottle. Get a spray bottle and spray it all over  - the mozzies don't like the smell and it'll put them off. If you've already been bittten, there's a cream which is similar to Germolene called Silvederma that you can buy from the chemists. It's an all purpose cream that can be used for bites, stings and minor burns. It's not expensive but it's very effective.

Hi get a box of mosquito repellant coils for outside, not near pets though, plug in mosquito repellent liquid ( buy repeller and liquid in starter pack)after you can get refills,  both from Mercadona pics attached. I have used these products for years they're the best.

If they've bitten you the best thing is apple cider vinegar, soak a cotton wool pad dab it on then it won't bother you again.

The town hall are in the process of spraying.
