    Oh man do you still get red spiders last time I saw one of them I was playing cowboys and indians, hide and seek, kirby and all that. Just yesterday of course.

    Little red spiders are a pain at the moment.....its difficult to get rid of those red smears they make. Horse flies can be vicious. One landed on my hand the other day and had drawn blood within a second. My mate got bit on his shoulder and it swelled up to the size of a cricket ball

    Yep and I tend to drown the little critters with me wfp norm.
    I carry with me in my double set of pouches cream cleaner, scrub pads, magic sponges etc etc so don't need to go back to the van.
