Mosquitos in December

Hi all,

Staying at Marhaba Club for a week in December,this will be my first visit to Tunisia.

As I am somewhat of a walking magnet for mozzies,do I need to pack my repellants?.

Just returned from Sousse and didnt see sight or sound of a mosquito. A friend who rented apartment for same period was bitten head to toe with terrible bites. it seems, for whatever reason, some people are affected and others not.

I agree WS

The moz picks its victims. And there are many theories why

Sweaty people are popular with the mossie ;-) as are heavy drinkers,sitting outdoors after sunset

. A mozzie delight

So I am told....... not guilty of either ;-)

Seriousy

I do think though that a lot of bites are down to other insects as well as the mosquito

So whatever time of the year we go to Tunisia we take repellent for all pests

Doesn't always work get the odd bite

But then you cannot "splash it on all over" as 'Enry used to say
