Big thanks to everyone who responded with remedies and potions re insect repellents, there's some great tips and suggestions. I've decided to give the bushman's a go and also try a few other products as well, as well as packing other lotions in the event of bites/stings including some anti-histamines.

Co-incidently my mum contacted me this morning to tell me she had been stung by a euro wasp and that she couldn't believe the pain of it, her arm has been affected and I passed on a couple of tips that I received yesterday and she is now carrying around with her some stuff in case it happens again - I certainly concur with her that the sting of a euro is OUCH - I was stung a few years ago several times on the nose - the blighter got caught under the rim of my hat ...and my whole face was numb - - andrew no smart remarks please.

cheers once again for the tips

Lyn

Ha - at least Steve can see sincerity oozing out of my pores.

The Publican - An undertaker? I might have some business for you!

Ruth - Walk Sturt's Stoney Desert in my hide?..... don't need something that tough ...... even a Mazda Bravo can make it up the top of Big Red - believe it or not.......................

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa - do you have ESP? What is my current emotion?

Andrew :-(((

Andrew,
Dont doctors use undertakers when they make a mistake!

"Carfull" with the bravo jokes they can come up big red first shot!

Mrs Al if you could see your way clear to take me on your holiday then I could be in charge of PESTS, (of the insect nature!)

Mazda bravos are great 4bys they have a lot coming and going for them.

Cheers Steve

Pesty,
You know that dimple on Maaaaaaaa's chin. It is her belly button after her last 50% off facelift that I did. I am scared that after her next face lift she might have to start shaving....

(No - I am not a plastic surgeon but I reckon it can't be that hard.....)
