 If you are going on holiday soon here is some money saving information to help you get even. Thumbs Up

Where you live so you have a branch of Savers? If so they are selling Xpel Mosquito & Insect repellent plug-in devices. They have a 2 pin plug, on/off switch and 35ml bottle of repellent solution. They say this should be sufficient for up to 45 nights. All of this comes at a price that will break the bank, just £1.99.

 Yammas, Colin.

The mossies love my Son's girlfriend and she reacts badly. Her ankles were so swollen at one point it was painful to walk. We tried all the available repellants and none worked. One day when in Kassiopi I saw a sign outside a health food shop (on the road out of the village on the left hand side just before Little Italy). The natural repellent was not cheap at 11 euro but it worked and transformed her holiday. Smells very strongly of eucalyptus.

I use the XPel mozzie wipes which we buy from Poundland. Find them to be very good. Also find with wipes you can usually guarantee to get better cover.

Have also been recommended a spray called Incognito which you can purchase from Amazon.

Hi Lins, I usually have to go to the doctors in Sidari for an injection as my bites become so infected but the past couple of holidays I have been using Boots Tropical strength, 50% deet and it is working a treat.

Only two very small bites this June, which disappeared in couple of days.

Enjoy your holiday Wink  Annie

First week in Kass bit 7 times. Then we got some stuff called Zanzaux in a aerosol 3€ from Pandora's supermarket, great stuff not a bite for the next two weeks.
Keep taking your, take a holiday in kassiopi pills.
