mosquitos in Crete

Postby KateCrete » Sun Dec 22, 2019 10:53 am

Good morning everyone,
I am a new member :)
After a dozen or so stays on the island, I'm starting to think about long-term rentals or buying a home. Where I went there were not many of mosquitos. Are they a special plague somewhere? What are your experiences with this?

We live in an inland village with a river that rarely runs dry, and there's also a fair bit of water around where they water the orange trees. We have mosquitoes most of the year, but I wouldn't call it a plague. We find mosquito wipes like https://www.amazon.co.uk/MOSQUITO-INSECT-REPELLENT-WIPES-TRAVEL/dp/B071YF48B2/ref=sr_1_6?crid=2P7Z3MC7LHTT3&dchild=1&keywords=mosquito+wipes&qid=1577443948&sprefix=mosquito+wipe%2Caps%2C210&sr=8-6very effective. Friends who live near the sea tend not to have mosquitoes. Hope that helps.
