Over the past few weeks I have found the perfect recipe for maximising the number of insect bites. Here are my handy tips:
In the dark
Dress in shorts (or a skirt). At dusk, go to the countryside (for example in the Netherlands, but any country would do). When you have found a suitable spot, crawl on the ground, flicker a small torch in all directions and make sure you stay outside until it’s really dark.
Dress in shorts and a tank top and make sure to wear open sandals (no socks!). Go to the countryside near you or make a little excursion. Upon arrival, kneel and crawl on the ground, paying attention only to the beautiful vegetation.
