i read in a local paper all the foreclosures are part of the problem. houses uncared for and uninhabited with standing water has made it easier for the mosquitos to breed. just one more perk of the lovely economic disaster going on.
One tried to bite me THROUGH my pants today. Of course, while I was gleefully killing him, 3 more landed and tried to bite. I hate using bug repellent, but my poor toddler must be a pint down in blood from them. I kept him inside today because I couldn't bear to spend an hour afterwards scratching the bites! And Afterbite isn't working at all on these bites.
