Sandflies In Thailand (Please take care especially in Koh Phayam, Koh Kood, Koh Chang and Koh Mak)

Sandflies In Thailand: You will find sandflies on the wonderful beaches of Thailand

Sandflies are tiny insects that are about one-third the size of a mosquito. They can be found in sandy or marshy areas and at high altitudes. There are many kinds of sandflies, depending on where you are in the world.

Sandflies breed in running water and are particularly prolific in areas near water and humid bush, for example at beaches, lakes, rivers, and swamps.

They are daybiters, striking primarily at dawn and dusk.

What about sandflys in Thailand?

Sand flies tend to be seasonal on a lot of islands. Of course you will find sandflies on the most wonderfull islands of Thaland. We taveld (Backpacking) a lot in Thailand. We unknowingly encountered the first sandflies (sand fly) in Thailand some years ago. They attacked our legs and arms and we didn’t even knew what they were and where all the bites came from. The following weeks are still burnt into our heads: we had horrible sleepless nights full of itching, scratching and hurting. Sometimes we even had allergic reactions within our group of fellow backpackers, which led to infections and nasty scars.
We felt that the relaxation of being on the beaches had somehow been taken away from us by an evil force. And a great part of our holiday was ruined.

We started our special mission in Thailand.  Stop f*** sandfly bites!

You will find sandflies in a lot of areas of Thailand.  Thailand has more then 500 islands. We will give ou some inormation where sandflies are most common.
