Insect Problems

Recommended Posts

Wow, i was out yesterday, did the Fox House, Burbage Rocks, Higger Tor, Mother Cap down into Hathersage for tea walk...around three hours with all the chat and watching the climbers, anyhows the thing i wanted to mention was the invasion of insects, flies or ants, both in places, the sky was literally grey in places, i watched a father grab his youngster from some rocks, the child was having a screaming fit after being mobbed by these things, i was coated several times in insect repelent but still they came, today i am a grumpy, pimply and itchy miserable dude...any tips other than stay away???

Try going in the area in fancy dress as a big insect, the little blighters might be scared of you and leave you alone.

I have also found insect bites particualrly bad this year I guess its the very wet summer thats causing a perfect breeding enviroment.
