1. Re: Which months are Mosquito months in Amsterdam?

Hi there,

Depends strongly on the weather pattern. They breed best in wet (not too cold) period followed by a quite hot (above 20') one. So with the current atypical summer period, the mosquito periods were early July and at present (from end of August). Two years ago, a more typical summer, they were from half July to half August.

But in terms of damage they're never very strong, especially in a city like Amsterdam. Countryside it's far more tough, there it can me more like Canadian spring/early summer or some parts of Oz...

Have a nice one,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

i stayed at the Albus Grand Hotel and heard that awful high pitched noise all night. In teh morning i was bitten all over and also began to notice blood all over the walls where people had been swatting them before me...yuk! They did however, in their defence, move me to another room:)
