Please can anybody help? Our garden is absolutely full of midges - from left to right and top to bottom!! Our next door neighbour is even worse off and the Cemetery, which is next door to her, is just one huge cloud.

Midges just LOVE me, being fair skinned, and of course when bitten I end up with big blistery lumps which go septic. However we have found that by taking a Vitamin B Complex daily it makes our skin smell horrible and they don't bite as much.

Avon skin so soft really does work.  You can buy it on line.  I usually buy it in bulk and have given it as gifts for friends, golfers, and campers.  It is a must for taking away on holiday to hot places.

Try planting a Eucalyptus tree but remember to prune it or you'll end up with a very large tree. I live near border with Scotland and midges are a real problem all day even when not sunny or particularly warm but the 2 shrub size eucalyptus help.
