    I’m a world expert at getting bitten by these nasties.

    One of the main reasons I go to Lanza is that they are very few and far between. You shouldn’t have a problem.

    I’ve had the odd bite over the years but nothing really. Typically going to mainland Spain, Greece or France I would get half a dozen every day ! I’ve even had to go to hospital for treatment. Tried everything to prevent it but gave up.

    I’ve tried Electric Devices, things you set fire to, sprays, anti-mosquito sun tan cream, anti-mosquito after-sun, Avon Skin So Soft, Citronella Sprays, Citronella Candles, Vitamin B1 tablets, anti-histamine tablets, and several other things I wont mention. I’ve even taken a full size mosquito net but still got bitten.

    Lanza for me from now on and I’ve dumped all the items I’ve mentioned.

    I’ve been going for over 20 years, at all different times, and never fail to get bitten if I don’t use repellent. Even then if I miss a square centimetre one of the little darlings will find me out!

    Repellent, plug ins for your room, and doors and windows closed after dusk.

    I’m a total mozzy magnet but have never had a problem with them in Lanzarote in over 30 years
