Mosquitos in the Woods

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO VISIT THE WOODS

We have received reports of mosquito bites while visiting the woods. 

We recommend you use mosquito repellent and mosquito proof clothing and avoid going into tall vegetation at dawn and dusk when mosquitos are most active. 

It’s been a challenge for our team and our work parties in the woods . Some people are genetically more susceptible to being bitten. Others don’t react badly for years and then something triggers them to react more.

There are lots of mosquitos around generally at the moment because of the heat, rain and humidity together. It’s something we can expect more of with global warming.

Also, the cold early spring may have reduced species that feed on mosquitos like bats, house martins, swifts, frogs and dragon flies.
