there are still some and if you are sensitive they will single you out.

I always carry a repelant with me. Also ask your hotel to provide you with a mosquito machine if you plan to leave your balcony doors open at night. I do usually to get the breeze from the sea.

I have just come back from a fortnight and there were very few biting insects. In fact one of the best places I have been to for lack of insects. I think I had one bite and never used a repellant. Good repellant is nasty stuff and generally I only use it when I have to, but if you feel better take some.

Should not be many around this this time of year. I am really prone to getting bitten but in 2 years living out there I was OK. In summer I used a plug in mosi machine at night but should be OK now.

Have just come back from Cyprus after getting married out there. I thought at this time of the year the mosquitoes would hopefully not be as bad as July/August but they were. I got lots of bites on my legs and arms and I can make them out on my wedding pictures!! I am prone to getting them but a lot of friends and family also got them so if I were you I would wear some repellent just to make sure.
