    The wee midgie

    WENT TO SW SCOTLAND LAST MONTH, FORGOT ANY ANTI-MIDGE GEAR

    GOT EATEN ALIVE EVERY TIME I STOPPED OR TRIED A HIGH SEAT,EVEN WHEN I SLEPT IN THE LANDY.

    GOING BACK THIS WEEKEND, GOT SOME CREAM AND SPRAY BY 'THE WEE MIDGIE' ,MADE IN SCOTLAND

    WAS RECOMMENDED,BUT I'LL POST HOW THE LITTLE SH..S LIKE IT?

    I always go for physical rather than chemical. I'll use Avon Skin So Soft on face and hands but wear a net and gloves.

    I have tried lots the avon works by them sticking to me and drowning.
    I now use tonic water....no gin though. Its the chemical in it they dnt like.
    Also an antihistamine from the doc also works for me.
    I dont do both its 1 or the other but im sure both would be ok.
