Mr G ,
It seems as if you have tried a lot.     Have you tried vitamin B.  Seemingly it works.  Personally I don't have a major problem but living in the wet tropics at this time of year it is a problem at dawn and dusk.  Once the sun goes then the mozzies arn't as active. Citronella seems to work although you smell like an oil lamp afterwards. O0
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

sj,ta, will research the vit B...HAVE TRIED THE CITRONELLA CANDLES AND EXTRACTS WITH CITRONELLA...yes, the wife smelt like a toilet disinfectant afterwards( which is a plus), but it didn't keep the mozzies away O0

Bravo giannineo, how where your stuffed peppers for dinner? I made our favourite Sofrito me makorona, kai lakanyia carrotta salata! it was great.
I noticed that a few tourists this year had little electronic bleepers for the mozzies, not sure whether they work or not though ::) But i suppose anything is worth a try eh?
