Even Midges Need a Holiday

Cunning thing midges. As reported in BG!'s blog, with a report from The Scotsman, scientists were going to be testing a midge spray that would cloak the wearer from the wee pests. A big test was run at the weekend's Loch Ness charity run. According to the Press & Journal, "midges were strangely rare" during the event.

Maybe it is like that elephant deterrent I bought for my flat.

Hopefully the scientists glean some useful data.

Maybe the mere threat of the intent to deploy the spray was enough to make the winged demons flee? If so, it's a winner!

Ah but, BeardedWatson, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
