    Midge season nears

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a non-aerosol and odourless spray that kills Black fly Midges and common blue bottles.

    About time, you were supposed to do that test for me a year ago!!!

    Not to worry, we lost out on the distributorship anyway as we wouldn't buy fifty grands worth up front!

    What do you mean 'season nears'???

    Little buggers hammered me at the weekend when trying to gralloch a wee roe buck. The skin on my arms felt like sandpaper by the time i was finished.

    Incidentally, i bought and used a thermacell last year. Success was patchy at best. On perfectly still days and not moving then it was as good as a good spray on but even a puff of wind and i was eaten alive.
