You will love Levuka and you'll love Rosemary and Robert too and their dogs. Beware though, there are many ticks so take the appropriate precautions.

Cheers....

The drops will be fine if you do them the day before you leave and are dilligent in checking the kids PJ. I have used some Proban tablets too, a couple days before through to and including a couple days after I return home. I personally would be reluctant to spray them with anything, they can lick it way too easily for my liking and I am also a bit like you, not too happy about too many chemicals.

The forest section where the bat colony hangs out (maybe they have moved on now) is also a bad area for them.

I have never had an issue with ticks there but then I never camp near to the bush, always camp out in the open and always take tick precautions.

Cheers and enjoy...

Can't find any mozzies to test it on around here, might have to wait for weather to warm up a bit :roll:

That was my thought too. Might have to wait a bit now, am sure they have all gone into hiding with this cold weather.

Might try that but another product that works well is Skoot insectide and insect repellent. It is pyrethrum based. Its safe to use on small children,my boy is 18 months old and i use it on him.
