    Us locals are all getting ripped apart by mossies at the moment. I've been here 4 years and never seen anything like it, other expats have been here 9 years and never seen anything like it.

    If you're traveling in the next week or so stock up on that repellent!

    The repellent wipes work really good too. Easy to travel with and less waste than sprays.

    I think at the moment it's just one of those freak situations you get from time to time. Probably due to the amount of rain we had from TS Dolly a week or two ago.

    There are mosquitos year round but they are not normally such a problem as they seem to be right now. I'm sure within a week or so the situation will be back to normal.
