Yes, there will be a lot, mainly at dawn and night.

But you can buy a local repellent "Simkov" it works pretty well (mostly:-)).

We didn't have a problem with them this year, I only had one bite. I usually put jungle forumla on in the evenings and never wear any perfume. One year we got lost, by the river, around dusk and something made a meal of us, but I'm not convinced that they were mossie bites.

We came back from there 2 weeks ago and I only got bit a couple of times. Whether it's because I sprayed myself from head to toe every day with repellent or I was just lucky but I was expecting them to be more of a problem especially as it was by the river.

Sinkov is the best stuff I have ever had for the mossies. Even the midges here in Scotland dont like it.

My I also suggest Avon Skin So Soft - Dry Oil Body Spray - is renouned for repelling mossies - you probably have to spray it on all exposed parts, and for people who are very suseptible to bites, top up with Turkish Sinkov or Jungle Formula or any mossie spray with DEET. I also put Essential oil of Citronella in my sun lotion! I am a nightmare for mossies. My other half also got bitten by Biting flies - this was near a still water pond though, so the Dalyan Delta may not be that bad. However, I think its just as well to be prepared.

Good luck everyone
