hi first time for me in the forum

my name is jane not good on a computer, can u tell - will get better. The other thing I'm not good with is mosquitos. We have a love/hate relationship. They love me I hate them. Are there many in New Zealand - especially near Auckland? I need to lose weight but not by being eaten alive! :scared:

Eat marmite - this is a Maori trick and works well. They are deterred by the smell that comes through the skin.

Living close to the coast and away from still water also helps.

Cheers for the advice - planning to live near the coast and will steer clear of still water. Hate marmite though but 2 out of 3 ain't bad! They really do love me though - hope there aren't as many as there are in Greece!!!!

Isn't it something to do with the vitamin B that's in Marmite?

You should be able to get the vitamin B substitute at the chemist, could be worth a try.

You can buy repellent and also get a plug in device for the home.

Sandflies dont seem to bit through sun cream so just plaster yourself. I got bit loads of times before and had some quite bad reactions to the bites then OH told me off for not having sun cream on..... it works a treat. I can sit on the beach when the tides just gone out and all the flies are out and they wont bite through the cream.... there you go..... no worries now.... youll be fine!!!

What make me cringe is when I watch Survivor and some of the people are simply covered all over in nasty red bites.....omg that would drive me nuts!
