They are actually quite pretty, striped with quite the flipity flopity flight pattern. Then in the wee small hours of the night is the ‘zzzzzzzzz’ mimicking a dentists drill. I am not ready for mosquito season. They are my nemesis. And no I can’t just be at one with them and no my itching isn’t over reacting! Citronella, after bite, itching cream, a collection of pharmacist chemical concoctions – NOTHING WORKS!

You’d think Scottish midgies are bad and yes there are mosquitoes in Scotland – but here both the mosquitoes and no see ums all want a bite!

Help me please – Do you know any concoction that might work?  What has worked for you?

  1. Try Calamine Lotion. I used it when I first moved to Australia, to tropical mossie infested Darwin. It works and you have to be patient. Also try to keep covered up and sleep under a mossie net. Prevention is better than cure when it comes to mossie bites! Good luck!

    • Thanks – funny Calamine lotion is so well known and yet i over looked it! Shall arm myself with some and most definately will be covered up!
