After beibg bitten lots last year I am using Skin-so -Soft too but use the spritzer type oil spray which I don't find at all oily. It does seem to work.

How are you supposed to start and maintain a healthy lifestyle if it completely removes a wine lover’s reason to live?

There are some nasty biters in the alottment that are silvery grey and moth like nobody seem to know the species. I managed to catch some and wonder who can identify them, They leave a nasty red dot and painful swelling for weeks. :?

Victor, could they be the Blandford Fly?

Do not put off thanking people when they have helped you, as they may not be there to thank later.

Clegs are my number one nasty biter - silent and painful even through jeans - but I'm not sure I would mistake them for a moth.

Blandford fly looks a bit bee like, not moth like. Interesting Victor, can you try to get a picture?
