Blue-flies?!
Onslaught by millions of blue flies. Descended on the camp after following us for about 3 hours from up by the crater. Insect repellent just makes them stick to you.

How long did they stick around for?

Fortunately for only a few hours till the wind and rain picked up. Didn't see them again after that, though the mosquitoes were always about to be sure :)

That's a lot of blue flies. What was there that they were attracted to?

I'm really not sure to be honest. At one work site we came across them seemingly just sitting (do bugs sit?) on the ground. Then after a while I guess we disturbed them to the point where they swarmed over us, our clothes, equipment, everything essentially. Insect repellant was totally ineffective. While we didn't notice them on the way back to camp they turned up shortly after our arrival and promptly covered tents with certain colours and not others. Maybe it was some different flies or maybe it was just the wind direction but it was pretty odd all the same. Didn't see any again after that.

That is very odd. There should be something to repel them blue flies. Did it rain after that? I know a house fly will sit on the ceiling when it's about to rain.

It did, though it rained quite a lot of the time so I'm not sure what to make of that. Perhaps they're described in some kind of entomology guide somewhere.

Sorry it took me so long to get back, very busy in the summer. I think there is a site that describes different kinds of bug and incests. I bet we could find out information there if I could just remember the site
