Can sometime please share with me the evolutionary, natural selective, ruin a perfectly relaxing summer night purpose of the mosquito?  We don't need them to pollinate our flowers.  They do not help to drop seeds for the next season.  Our meat would still rot without their disgusting spawn.  Why exactly are they here?  And how many can there possibly be in one backyard?

It seems that if you swat and get rid of one, two more come to take its place.  They are everywhere.  Buzzing in your ear, attacking your ankles, and leaving you scratching long after you have shut the door on their annoyance. 

Bug spray, not a deterrent.  A fire, no effect.  Standing still, dryer sheets, Avon Skin-So-Soft, so does not work.  Nothing does!  Until you break down and come inside.  Ugh...

  1. HEY JEN! Sorry I've been an absentee reader for a while - I've spent my summer studying for the bar exam. Anyway, that is behind me and life is now AWESOME.

    SO - I suggest (and it works, I tried it), use dryer sheet and rub it on your exposed skin and the just leave it out on the table or put it in your pocket - apparently mosquitos HATE mountain fresh scent.

    P.S. Happy belated birthday to your baby girl!
