A great range of products for dealing with the aftermath of any beasties that make it through your defences. It's good to be prepared, particularly where children are concerned or if you have sensitive skin that reacts to bites.
Mosquito nets provide essential protection from insect borne diseases, and will help make sure you get a peaceful night's sleep. It's important to know what you're buying, as they're available in many different shapes and sizes.
Combined with repellent these can be a life saver in high risk areas where you need to do everything you can to avoid being bitten - and could save your sanity if you're under attack from a swarm of midges!
Perhaps they're terribly misunderstood and are just trying to be friendly - or perhaps they really are just horrible blood-sucking monsters. Either way, the best defence is a pair of leech socks firmly tied above the knee.
Bed Bugs - the name says it all really - nasty little critters who hide in beds waiting to pounce - and they're becoming increasingly common. Fleas can be a problem too, so it's well worth taking a few precautions.
Citronella and Lavendin have been used in candles, incense and mosquito coils for many years, and whilst they should never be relied upon in high risk areas they can often be an advantage both inside and out.
