MozzieGuard is nasty-stuff free (DEET?) but stinks because it's citronella. I've seen wristbands that you put a little citronella square in - they might be ideal.

ooooh Thank you do you know where I can get it

have found this, has anyone used it

Can't find mozzie guard in this country

SoupDragon Wed 22-Jun-05 16:32:13

It's mosiguard and it's available from boots on line. I spelt it wrong

The roll on version might be best for a child.

SoupDragon Wed 22-Jun-05 16:34:18

Or there's this one but I'm not sure it's available in the UK.

RTKangaMummy Wed 22-Jun-05 16:42:26

That is why I couldn't find it your spelling !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes think the rollon would be safer for him to put on

Hopefully it is ok with sun tan lotion

The last link is a <<deffo brill>> example of what may bite will warn him to look out for them

It is usually in the evenings isn't it that they are around??????

Try - not cheap but it smells divine, everyone who I have recommended it to has loved it and you can use it on babies.

Boots sell a mozzie spray for kids and Mothercare do coloured bands you can put on wrists/ankles, strollers etc.
