They are around all year. Some people miraculously dodge them whilst others are feasted upon. Mozzie tips in the Tios thread, at the top of the forum, or under Top Q, over on the right of the page. Sprays containing deet are effective, altho some are wary of such a chemical, so other tips are given in the links mentioned. Local spray, with deet, is, "Off".

I was 3 days into my holiday in June. Joking with my partner saying I can't beleive everyone's complaining about Mosquitos I haven't been bitten once!!! So I stopped putting on my mozzie repellent and What do you know, the next day my legs were savaged and bitten to pieces. About 25 bites on each leg. Have been home a week and still got sores, scars, marks and scabs!!!! :(

We always get the local spray called OFF it costs us around £2.50 from the supermarket but it stops us from being bitten.
