    For the past week ive been feasted upon by something in my room... its not Roxie dog and shes been de-fleed etc so its nothing like that.

    It seems to be on my left ankle.. ive got at least 8 itchy bites on my ankle :eek: and ive had some on my thigh and knee in the past week too! Mum says theres a moskito (sp?) in my room thats have a feast each night :(

    Anyway i bought some insert repellent to spray in my room tonight, but i was wondering about poor Roxie dog? If i spray it on my bed will rolo think it smells yucky? is it bad for doggies to be around?

    I have no idea... ? x

    Have you ruled out bed bugs?

    I can recommend Avon's Skin so Soft dry oil body spray, the folk up in Scotland swear by it. They get plagued by all those horrible little insects. Apparently it works really well for them and it also does a wonderful job on your skin. We bought a couple of bottles for our camping trip last year. My husband always gets bitten while camping, and the bites almost always go septic. He didn't get one single bit in a 1 week camping trip. I also sprayed it all over the net covering our bedroom compartment. As a result we didn't get any annoying bugs in there at bed time ... result!
