    I am convinced this is the year of the super bug. I can’t step onto my deck without getting attacked by a wide variety of itch-producing disease carryng insects. What’s up with that? Too much spring rain? That would explain the mosquito infestation.

      You would think the terrible winter we had would’ve killed everything. At the very beginning of spring there was a mosquito on my deck that was almost twice the size of a 50 cent coin. Scared the hell outta me. And then I squashed it.

    We used to use Avon Skin-So-Soft on horses to fight against summer flies! I didn’t really know people used it for mosquitoes until recently.
    I’m terrified of the damage they can cause. Why can’t we find a way to wage war on them? I guess winter is our weak effort.

    With the ice storms and the hard winter we had in my area I have noticed the lady bugs and the spiders are missing. You would have thought the other critters would have been wiped out too.

      I suspect a momma spider delivered a brood of babies in my house. Tiny baby spiders everywhere in my house all of a sudden. Ugh.

    I’m curious to see this summer if mosquitos want to bite my poisoned ass anymore -this chemo has to have been good for something :)

    An alternative or supplement to coating one’s skin is foggers or better yet, those thingees that burn 3-4 hours on poles.

    An alternative or supplement to coating one’s skin is foggers or better yet, those thingees that burn 3-4 hours on poles. Also, no puddles in places like empty old tires.

      I love those tiki pole thingies, but I can’t carry one around if I’m out & about… or can I? Doubles as a weapon, maybe?

    Oh crap, we are having the WORST mosquito season here ever, and I hate wearing repellant, so I had kind or resigned myself to being bitten, since I don’t much react anymore the bites.

    Now there’s some creepy virus? I may have to investigate your bug spray stuff, though sprays never seem to dissuade the damn critters when I use them, even the toxic high-powered deet ones. I must have some delicious smelling blood or something.

      My hubs also has delicious blood. Are ya’ll related? If I forget to spray even one uncovered, tiny space of his bawwwdy, the mosquito critters bite in that particular location.

      Yup. I hate the heat, too. But I also hate the cold. Where on Earth can the weather satisfy 365 day a year? I want to go there!

    I heard about the mosquito virus the other day on NPR. Last year I started using a bug repellent brand called EcoSmart that I really liked.. It’s chemical free and didn’t have a bad scent. The bug struggle is real this summer :-( thanks for the info
