How bad are the mosquitos in February?

Hi there,

Doing our list of what to bring for our trip in February. The mozzies absolutely love me and want to bring some repellant from home in the UK . Don't want to spend too much time shopping for essentials when there'll be so many other things to do.

Any suggestions of which products may be the best. Our nurse at the doctors office says that there isn't a high risk of malaria in the regions we'll be travelling - but best to be sure than sorry though.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

You don't need to worry but you will definitely need a good repellent, we use Autan but whats effective for someone might not be for others.

Thankyou both for the advice given. I was getting so confused with all the different types of mozzy spray. Everyone seems to reccommend some different product.

Thanks udaipurmagic for the thread - 16 degrees daytime would be a lovely spring day here.

Really getting excited now.

best wishes

Just buy a tube of local Odomos repellant when you get here. Its the best there is.

yea the nurses are right, so just to be on the safe side I would recommend you to carry a Mosquito repellent and DO NOT BUY any Mosquito repellent in india as it basically made for the Indian skin type. So it may cause skin allergy to you.
