Wasps & Mosquitos

Coming to Scala in 9 days time, our home from home,😀 but can anyone tell me if the wasps are much worse this year than normal ?

Also I am loved by mosquitos too -are they any worse, and has anyone any handy tips apart from the obvious to not getting bitten so badly ?

In fiscardo at the minute,more wasps than usual this year but seem to go once sun sets. Got a few mozzy bites but not many, been using crilen anti mosquito cream in the evenings and same brand after bite, works for me I normally get bitten to death, you can buy it in the pharmacies here, not cheap but worth it, it was recommended by a trip advisor member, hope this helps.

Quite a few wasps around Tara Beach, a bit annoying but what can you do. Still a brilliant place.

We were in Skala last week,staying at the TesoroBlu and the wasps were a real nuisance, especially at breakfast. The hotel staff put ground coffee in small containers lined with tin-foil and light it. The smoke discourages the wasps but doesn't completely get tid of them.
