We used the xray facility at la Croix Blanche last summer, after a referral from a local GP, even though we're not registered. It was pretty quick, though not an emergency.

No solutions from me, I'm afraid, but a piece of info, just in case - hornets fly at night and, like moths, are attracted by light. I know this because four of them came into our living room last year, attracted by a sliver of light under the door - now covered up! Good luck. It sounds awful.

Does anyone have any idea what we should pay our farmer neighbour for some well rotted farmyard manure? He let us barrow 30+ loads down to our veg plot but neither of us has any idea what a good price to pay would be.

If they are bed bugs you will see them - they're flat and brownish and hide along the mattress seams during the day. We picked some up several years ago from the Campanile hotel at Chateauroux on our way home and it ended up costing a fortune before we finally got rid of them. We had to buy a new ma...
