Your best defense is a good offense
Timing is everything. Sandflies love dusk just as much as you do. But instead of unwinding from a long day of work, and hopefully some play, they are gearing up for a meal. So apply Goodbye Sandfly, or reapply if it has been more than a few hours.
Don’t stop, keep on moving on. Sandflies prefer nonmoving targets. If you are out talking to people at a BBQ, sitting with a drink by the beach, or just taking a break on a hike be sure to cover up with clothes and a spritz of Sandfly. I make sure that I am always prepared with both at my outside table when I meet up with friends for a coffee and catch up.
Wishing you good health in our beautiful, sometimes buggy world. With respect, Becky
