In May/June out in the countryside we get Noseeums millions of them they get everywhere bite turns into a welt that you are dying to scratch looks like you have been machine gunned

They will get you anywhere you have exposed skin or up your trouser legs & around your belt line In your ears they sound like a F1 car,

A couple of days with temps over a 100 they are gone.

Nothing seems to scare them off & one thing I learned is don't leave your car window open you will have them for a week.

If you cram cotton wool into a small tub (say) like an Aspirin one, pour the citronella and baby oil on top of it, no leaks no splashes!

My wife gets bitten to shreds and so did my late mother. I'm lucky. They don't bite me. I must have poisonous blood.

if I remember as a kid we would rub on a dock leaf for a nettle sting.

in me trade I worked with hot bitumen as a roofer and many adult would say I bet thats hot mate, and i'd reply oh yes it cures toothache,

does it really? they'd say. Oh yes dip yer finger in you'll forget all about yer toothache. I wouldn't recomend it though.
