Have got some Jungle Formula and After Bite but would prefer some less chemically options for the baby and toddler if possible.

I like vitamin B12 and lots of garlic, no proper evidence that it works. A lot of my friends swear that Avon's skin so soft (moisturising oil spray) keeps the bugs at bay.

TBH I'd suggest making sure they're tucked up before dusk with windows closed and a mosquito net and maybe a plug in repellant.

I got 100% and 50% deet and wrist bands and ankle bands to put the 100% deet onto and slept with them on.

Along with electric plug ins

I got three bites in two weeks

avons skin so soft didn't work on Indian mozzis sad

You can get some good repellents in Turkey - Johnson's Off! and Sinkov work well.

As for non-chemical options try some lemon cologne, it is cool and refreshing and the mozzies don't like the lemon smell. It is perfectly safe for children, you can buy it everywhere there. You could also try one of the mosquito repellent wrist bands, I got some in Mothercare.

The plug ins are all pretty much the same.

Don't wear perfume, mozzies are attracted to it!

I tried skin so soft once and the mozzies loved it, I don't normally get bitten but I got eaten wearing that shock
