I read an article the other day that due to the snow on the ground and its insulating effects, midge larvae have a much higher survival rate and may be as much as 200 times worse than normal years. Now I dont know about anyone else but Im not relishing the prospect!! So I was wondering, has anybody tried the thermacell unit? It claims to be 98% effective against most types of biting insect. Has anybody used this in scotland and does it work on the midge?
Its almost a tenner cheaper on amazon an at just more than twenty squid, I think I may be giving it ago this summer. Last summer I lost a number of deer, one in particular, a cracking roe buck, because I had a bloody midge munching on my eyeball!!!!
