Hi,

Yes, there are plenty & they are around 365 days a year!

Plz see the tips thread at he top of the Sharm forum for advice (there is a mozzie section):

Excellent hints and tips many thanks. I still have some concerns as we have never been to Egypt before and I keep reading or hearing about people becoming very sick and I really do not want to be bitten to death by the mozzies. I keep having visions as this being a holiday from hell.

Anti-sickness:

Good hand hygeine.

Only bottled/hotel filtered water.

Don't over-eat/drink/sun/aircon.

Anti-mozzies:

Vit B1 tablets.

Avon So-Soft moisturising cream.

Deet if you are really worried or above doesn't work for you (did for my wife who ALWAYS gets bitten).
