We have tried many different kinds of mozzie spray over the years, and we think that 'Jungle formula' is by far the best. We will certainly be stocking up.

Thanks Jo.

Bought jungle one in boots, buy one, get one half price. I did look at the boots maximum one,  but it said u need to re apply every 5/6 hours. The boots one lasts up to 10 hours. So more cost effective and lasts all evening.
Also sizes can vary too.

Friends of ours recommended Mosquito milk a few years ago (available here... http://www.chemistdirect.co.uk/mosquito-milk/prd-hi5). It's a roll on and smells really nice. It makes a change from the bouts of coughing I normally have with the spray!

For us, at least, it works a dream!

I meant the jungle one lasts 10 hours and the boots on lasts 5/6 hours.
What size is the morrisons  one that is on offer?

Hubby has been bitten really badly this year, first time for him and he will tell you it is not a pleasant novel experience. We have been buying after bite but it has only been giving temporary relief. One particularly sleepless night (due to the itching!) he sat up "googling" and discovered many natural suggestions - one of which is the juice from fresh lemons. He tried that yesterday. First time he rubbed the lemons on his bites it stung and the bites looked very red and angry, but felt less itchy. Within an hour they visibly looked calmer and drier. He has applied in several times before going to bed last night and this morning they have practically gone. Hope that helps if your jungle formula doesn't work!!!

 We always use lemon shampoo and body wash in Arillas, mosquitos don't like the smell. Spray your room with fly killer before you go out and keep doors shut when you return. Don't forget to spay under beds and furniture as that's where they hide during the day.

Lemon is an old remedy, but does sting if the skin is broken with scratching.....just rubbing the outside of the peel on your skin will give some relief as well, it is the oil that helps so scratch the lemon peel first.

Lemon will not help if you have an allergic reaction to to the bites though, it should only be used for the itch or as a natural deterrent.

I know it's a chore covering your body with repellant....but just rubbing it on ALL your exposed parts will help to keep the little pests off you and maybe go and bite someone else ;)
