We do have some mozzies, but it is rarely a major issue. To stop them biting take Brewers Yeast tablets.

Garlic tablets available here and contraceptive pills are available over the counter.

Eat more Marmite & you won't get bitten as much. It has the same properties as brewers yeast & really does keep the bugges away.

Really, doctor! So how does that work? Would coating my skin with marmite have the same effect or does it have to be in the blood stream?

Think your right with the marmite but its much easier to take a multi-vitamin containing vitamin B12 !

Worked a treat in Marbella last year and you don't have an array of stray dogs and cats following you around as with the marmite solution !
