Beating the leeches

Been up cutting tracks at the Pig Pen in the wet. Was wearing riding pants and boots but the bloody leeches got in. Now I'm itching like bloody hell. Do you think wearing full length skins or even some ladies stocking. I even thought I'm wearing my bloody wetsuit and booties next time. How do you keep them out

Easy ... I used to live at Palmdale (leech city!!) = Aeroguard

Just spray it on you before you ride - they hate it!!

Recently I was cutting some single near my place and got heaps of leeches. Bought some Bushman's Insect repellant and used it before I next went and it worked very well.

Ok changed my mind ... I dont think aeroguard really works ... you should all wear lady stockings (and gopro's) as nugget suggested

Something like this should work ImageUploadedByTapatalk1372387219.166188.jpg

I find a diet rich in alcohol keeps them away
