      Guess you could try rubbing marmite over any exposed skin, if it's thick enough the buggers might not get through

      You must have tamer midgies and not come far enough north Craig :wink:

      Tbh, The one quoted does works at least as well as any but the little f**kers still manage to bite somewhere no matter what you have on.

        Of course, as in life, it's only the females that bite.
        Abstinence is fine, in moderation.

          Hi Ed, I saw you commenting on a post a few days ago and wondered………

          Did you get rid of the AM and more to the point did you manage to get a AY one?

          Be good if you can make some runs :thumbsup:
