Hi guys just a quick question please.

We will be in your beautiful country next week (WOOHOO!!! Can't wait) and I have read in various messages about sandflies being a nuisance. Are they prevalent at this time of the year and can anyone recommend an effective repellent (brand name)?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

No miki you're about average, they really aren't that big a problem, it just seems they are over-zealous with some people.
