You know it's Spring when.....

I don't know whether it's a queen wasp or a hornet, but it has driven me out of the living room. I'm allergic to wasp stings, so encountering one about 5cm long is not exactly on my top 1000 list of things to do. I've bug sprayed the room and am waiting the minimum 10 minutes the can recomends to wait.


If this is the shape of things to come this Summer, can anyone recommend a good bug repellent? Spiders are good, but the GLW doesn't like them.

Avon do a product called 'skin so soft' that is meant to be excellent for keeping flies away. I haven't used it myself but I know a lot of people use it on horses as horse fly repellent is rubbish- and horses attract a lot more flies than people! (I'll be trying it this year on my boy). I've also seen it recommended a lot for people who like hiking and camping.

A quick google suggests that it does also repel wasps :)

The ONLY thing we have to fear is FEAR ITSELF ....and spiders.

One that works is what we used in the Army on spec ops in places like Belize. Horse sperm works amazingly well.

 

Step one,,,, Catch your horse


Step two,,, remove the lid from the jar


Step three,,, :booty: (get the idea) :D

 

Or you could check out the specialist videos available on the internet :lol:

Thats one essential bit of kit you need if you ride around Scotland when the Midgies are out.

Keeps them away, brilliant stuff

citronalla can also be bought in oil form and wiping that around door frames and window frames is good. its a bit early in the year but when the conkers fall grab some, spiders dont like them, put them around the house esp in places they like to hide :)

Well i think the advice should be to get ONE BIG SPIDER then. Sounds like the big spider is either eating or scaring away the rest
