Like many, we are getting loads of mozzies!  I take anti histamine tablets daily, use repellant and use bite cream. 

Does anyone have any good advice on products to repel them etc?

Hi

I have bought the Avon spray. Which is a dry oil spray. Cant think of the name of it. Works wonders. One tablet a day. 

My partner takes B6 tablets.

If anyone finds a final solution for these wee beasties please bottle and sell, you will become very rich if you guarantee the solution. I have tried everything from Avon cosmetics, bug killer, citronella, herbs, repellent etc etc but still become a living meal for the b.....s.

Deet, Deet and more deet.  Any product that has at least 50% deet works every time.
