Mosquitos on Paxos?

We are going for our first trip to Paxos in a couple of weeks (Gaios to be specific). Are mosquitos prevalent on the island - i.e. should I come equipped with sprays etc. Thanks!

I agree, plug-ins for your room & spray for your body, they're only really a problem in the evening though. My plug in gets switched on after our siesta and stays on until morning.

I have a liquid one that I bought online from Amazon, used it for the whole week last time and only used about 1/3 of the liquid.

I spray in the day too especially if off walking around as the beggars just love me. Take anti histamine for 2 weeks before you go and 2 after if you suffer like me, makes the lumps much smaller!
