lack of vitamin b apparently so I was told after getting hundreds of mossy bites in africa recently - so pass the marmite!

Starting to believe your the Dr. Doolittle of the Bug kingdom. The only ones that I can attract are the ones that bite! Wink Spot on! Click!!!

Beautiful colours and details! Good catch!

You're just warm blooded! My father attracts bites and stings, as do I and my son... blood group O posative... That anything to do with it? No-one else gets bothered! As long as they're just landing, you're fine! Smile (If they bite too, try geranium oil, or rub hardy or wild geranium leaves on you. Stops the itch too!)
