About this deal

In a severely midge infested area, clouds of the insects can make it difficult to see, regardless of whether or not you actually get bitten!

According to some comments on forums that discuss this question, portable battery fans have a role to play in your anti-midge armoury. The head net is a bit tailored, and people with large heads may find it a bit tight or perhaps claustrophobic at first. It's incredibly light at only 16 grams and comes in a tiny stuff sack that will help to keep the net protected in your pocket when not being used.Midges, weather, tipping, driving, best time to visit and more…essential background for your trip to Scotland. However, due to the challenges in positively identifying this species, is actual distribution is still unclear. Repellent Sprays and Creams – Invest in quality midge repellent products, like creams and sprays, but ensure they contain one of the following active ingredients: DEET (diethyltoluamide), IR3535 (Ethyl butyl-acetylamino propionate), Saltidin and Citriodiol.

We plan to drive and stop, and just do short hikes (<30 minutes) from the car before driving again, so we are hoping we aren’t too vulnerable. Pop Up Mosquito Head Net hats are great for when you want an all in one that let's you breathe a little more comfortably. Another argument used in favour of widespread midge control (if not outright eradication) is that, while they do play a role in the food chain – eaten by a range of bats and birds and other creatures – those creatures would, if midges were gone, just eat something else.The Scottish Midge Forecast is created using data collected from biting midge traps and mini-weather stations across the country. But, if you’re itching, there are plenty of sting relief products on the market – which also work for mosquito bites.

Incognito have a wide range of insect repellent products including suncream, body wash, lotion, roll-ons and incense sticks. On the subject of what to wear; because midges have very shallow biting jaws, attacks are confined to bare skin. The question is a complex one, but one to which everyone who knows anything about outdoors life in Scotland thinks that they have the answer.They protect against the midge as well as any decent midge net and the glasses are very clear indeed. Some people will have a stronger immune response and will get big red lumps at the site of bites, while other people will see only a small red mark at the bite site. Midges don’t hate light-coloured clothing but pale colours can make you a less obvious target to midges. Once they have a whiff of our tasty CO2 emissions, they hone in on our body heat, movement and of course, exposed fleshy bits. If left undisturbed, a female midge will remain there, feeding, for 3-4 minutes, taking an average of 2 µl of blood.
