Mossy bites prevention

Recommended Posts

Until a couple of years ago, I used to get really nasty reactions

Less so now for some reason

Even bites over here round my ankles would see massive swelling

If you do get bitten, there's some decent afterbite stuff, including a jungle one

Also, anti histemines need to be in your luggage

Its not the bite, it's the reaction, after all

Rid, Off, Bushman - they have loads of em down here and they all work. Good job too - the little bastards love our Pommy blood.

We bought some stuff off Amazon for our trip to Kenya & Tanzania. Spent 5 days out on safari and no bites, mind you it was 90% DEET, I think.

I'll ask our Polly what it was called when she gets back in.

Aloe vera from the local reggae man supplied in a rum bottle did the trick for me in Barbados. It did smell

rather vile though

Faint whiff of mushrooms by any chance?

Got eaten alive by then in Ibiza a couple of weeks back

Apparently this summer is the worst they can remember for it. Some new strain, tiger mozzies or summat

tried the sprays, wristbands, nothing worked overly well

Never ever had a problem with them before. They completely ignored my missus and eldest and smashed me and the youngest. V odd
