Identification of insect pest…..

Almost certainly the aptly named confused flour beetle ( tribolium confusum ) or one of its closely related cousins, generally they arrive in contaminated grain products  purchased from the shops, getting rid is usually achieved by disposal of the contaminated grain products and to be on the safe side also any other grain and rice products in your cupboard.

A good guess for your moth would be one of the over 4000 species of filter fly’s (Psychodidae) that live and breed down plug holes and drains, getting rid involves cleaning said plug holes and drains ( the bit just above the waterline is the important area). hot soapy water generally does the trick the water needs to have some washing up liquid in it as these critters are water proof.

well done on the inclusion of a photo with the coin it do make ID a lot easier !!  Haydn



Well trained, friendly cat…..

cat01 cat02Do you need a well trained, very friendly cat for 6 months to one year only to keep you company? A local lad, friend of our son, who has a beautiful, well trained, 4 year old cat, very friendly, affectionate and playful (4 years old) and a good companion, needs someone to look after her for a year, as he has had to go to the UK to find work.  We desperately need a home for her while he is there.  If you are here for a year, maybe renting, would you like to have her as your companion for the time you are here? She is not used to other pets so best in a house with no other cats.  Contact Toni on 606010580



Fosterers Sought Urgently by Action for Animals UK/Spain


We urgently need fosterers for 6 small  puppies abandoned in a box in . They are now around 7 weeks old. They have all found permanent homes in Belgium, but they cannot travel until December 8th.

Can anyone in the Cómpeta area help to foster  – even if just for a week in the period leading up to December?

Due to their age, ideally they need to be fostered in at least twos – and they entertain each other! More photos available on our Facebook page Action for Animals UK/Spain.

If you think you can help (even for a short time) please telephone Nina on

0034 660586040

What’s on- The 4th La Herradura Sea Festival

The Festival takes place this year on 7th and 8th October. The theme is La Mar de Vida -tan cerca , tan fragil and that theme of fragility and the response of the people of the village of La Herradura to the marine challenges in this area will be echoed throughout the two day festival.  Most of the activity will be centered in the area of the beach close to the Marinero statue/proteccion civil so that everyone will be easily able to join in.

Day one will have as its focus the children of the village, in particular the primary school children from Las Gaviotas as they learn through play and edutainment about becoming ‘future guardians of the sea’. Their parade starts at the school Las Gaviotas at 9.30 on 7th. Watch out for the gorgeous masks they will be wearing and the float with mermaids and mermen. They will visit the wonderful children’s photo exhibition  in the Centro Civico and then proceed to a circuit of workshops on many aspects of sea life echoing the theme of this year’s festival. A special song has been composed for the children this year.

Saturday 8th October starts with some great opportunities to introduce yourself to sea activities with trying out breathing under water with diving equipment and short catamaran trips.

You need to email inscripcionesfmar @ gmail.com to register for these in advance. The Asociación Amigos del Mar will have an information booth on the beach.

There will be plenty of fun for all the family with a set of stalls and games all sea themed plus a quiz during the paella lunch with lots of great local musicians playing throughout the afternoon. The action starts around 12 on the beach.

Don’t miss this year’s festival. It’s part of the blueprint for developing a place of marine excellence.
