I'm going to regret saying this but no, I haven't tried it because I haven't been bitten. Yet. This year.

I tried it and it worked.!!
The pain of the bite was obliterated by the pain of the blister that replaced it.        :)

That's what I was thinking might happen 'cos it says "warm the spoon under hot water" NOT "heat the spoon 'til it's going into meltdown".

This works by the way. My wife who suffers dreadfully with bites that turn septic has started to use this method as soon as she discovers a bite and it stops all itching and further complications

Having always been an attractive snack to mozzies I am definitely going to try this. If it works - brilliant. If it doesn't, no harm done.
Thanks for the tip.   :)

How simple is this after all the concoctions we've tried! It must be the pressure of the spoon bowl. I assume it'll work by heating it in the sun too (if on a long trek). Good to know. (Now I'll have to add a spoon to all the other 'stuff' in my bag!)   ;)

Hope you don't get bitten in Calis on a Sunday, the waters generally turned off for hours.  ;)  :)

Just asked Chris how she does it. She dunks the teaspoon in boiling water, allows it to cool for a second and then carefully applies the. spoon to bite area at the hottest temperature she can stand but obviously without causing a burn, apply a slight pressure and repeat. We think the heat kills the Bactria that multiplies in the bite area.

Over the years, she has tried everything, this method really works.

The method iv'e used for some years is,once you are aware of the bite, pinch it whilst counting to ten,why this works I don't know but apart from the occasional  bruise from over pinching the itching and swelling stops.If you get a bite where you can't reach you soon find out who your friends are!!
