Feast ...

Mosquitoes and any kind of biting insect will always find me and feast on me.  I must taste really good.  It drives me crazy and it's one of the only reasons I don't mind living in a cool climate - anywhere warm and I'd be plagued!! 

My bites swell up badly too ... eeeugh ... just the thought of it makes me feel like running away to hide!

me too cass.

Yes, holidays in the Arctic Circle in future - hang on! I could just stay at home lol!!

Garlic in a head band is meant to work ,so they say , the Avon one does work . Try it and see , can't say i didn't get bit , just not so bad . I always blow up if bitten to much . Cold holidays the answer to it all. X

thanks for the tip escher

thanks Reece - I think I read something like that too. they get me on all three then!! I heard if you eat lots of garlic and spicy food they avoid you - but then so does the rest of the world!!

I heard once on some scientific study that they find women, ppl with blonde hair, and ppl that it bannannas get bitten the most.....

Ooh very unpleasant EnglishMuffin. I got bitten to death in Portugal once - it just spoils the holiday for me because if I get too many bites it makes me feel really unwell.

So lucky, michelle56!<br />

We holidayed in Cyprus once but never again. Beautiful country, great food, hot weather - but the mosquitos viewed me as an all-you-can-eat buffet :(<br />

One of the bites (calf muscle) hit a thin vein so now I have an ugly thread vein ring where it swelled up. Damn them!

you're lucky michelle!!
