Mosquitos

After reading various resort reviews, I am getting quite concerned about the mosquito plague in Armacao de Pera.

Can anyone who is or as been in Armacao give readers an update on the situation at the moment. I know the council there are taking some form of action to get rid of the large number of mosquito's but is it working or will we get bit to hell.

As of last night 14/08, yes there are mosquitos and myself and my partner have been bit several times, but tend not to be a major problem when out in the bars etc, come prepared also do try the fresh lemon juice, i tried it last night and didnt get bit once.

Fresh lemon juice? Drink it or rub it on your skin?

Drink with gin or brandy perhaps?

No mosquitoes here in Albufeira today.

I have the plug in repellent thing poised, just in case.

Yes the news reports make it sound like its something from a arnie movie, yes there is a problem at this moment in time even with repellents, unfortunately it just something we have to except and not let spoil the holiday.

Hi every one, is there any more news on the mozzi's ? Also i have heard it's 40 deg at the moment, we fly out on 28/aug hope mozzis are not as bad then as we both react to bites.
