You need to remember that it is only pregnant female midges that bite, as they need the blood to feed their unborn young. So you may think you have found the perfect repellent BUT infact are just in the company of none aggressive midges.LargeWayRound wrote:You are not going to be alone in trying this tried and tested midge repellant.. :laugh:The Wilbur wrote:Drink the local Whisky!
When it starts to exude from your pores, the midges think you are a local and leave you alone.
That's what I'm going to try at Ullapool anyway.
Hopefully by the end of sept , there will not be so many about ... midge that is !
Also worth considering is the pregnant females need to grasp you with their back legs in order to get enough purchase to take a chunk out of you. Avon skin so soft needs to be applied liberaly so that your skin is too slippy for the bastards to get a hold on you. Skin so soft is not a repellent & they will still buzz around you, land on you & tickle you ... but I have yet to be bitten where it is applied.
Finally, location & time of year are very important; last year in May I would have got eaten alive at a campsite on Ullswater, next day headed to the Highlands & never saw a midge all week.
If you go to the West coast before mid June, you should be ok, add a light breeze & you will be fine. Flat calm, sultry & damp & it could just be hell if the girls are biting.
Best advice is to avoid the kids 6 week summer holiday period.
