I HATE Mosquitos...alot  Pissed

Infact, I have become somewhat an ace at Mosquito killing while sitting here at the PC. My record was 6 in one evening. Quick reflexes and good eyes needed. I just don't think the spiders around here are doing a very good job at population control...

Anyone else here anti-mosquito?

Yeah, definitely! But who is pro-Mosquito? I don't really think any sane human being can like something that bites them (and in areas of Africa, gives you Malaria). But yeah, I really don't like mosquitos.

Yeah! Mosquitoes are not fun! There are too many where I am during the summer. They haven't gotten too bad yet though.  Smile

Be glad mosquitoes are not considered an endangered species like they were in Lilo and Stitch.  Smile

The worse is when your trying to get asleep and you just hear the buzzing. The buzzing keeps getting closer and closer and then it stops. Then it's silent. That's when I crack myself in the face trying to kill it. Does anyone know of a better way?

Just get yourself one of those handy dandy indoor bug zappers, you might hear some buzzing but then you'll hear that wonderful ZAP and no more bug, the fine aroma of fried bug is an added bonus.

I got this keychain at the discovery channel store the other day. Its emits a very high pitched noise that supposedly makes mosquitos stay away from you. My preliminary results with the thing are that it doesn't work. I was standing out watching planes today and was bitten multiple times, but I was bitten less than my friend. But not that much less. If worst comes to worst, I paid 10$ for a solar powered LED light.

There are 2 easy options I know to keep biting bugs away. Garlic and Brewers yeast. One teaspoon of brewers yeast on your morning oatmeal or a good dose of garlic 2 or 3 times a week makes your blood rather unpleasant to the little beasts. For outside relief use dry ice. Just set a chunk about 10 feet away and you'll have no problems. Just make sure there are no small children or dogs around. Cats are no problem, they'll stay away.

PS: Thanks Johan. I truly believe you've covered things well and we will behave.

I despise mosquitos.. As for PRO-MOSQUITO, maybe those aliens from the movie Lilo and Stitch.. but anyway..

I hate SPIDERS and BEES/WASPS/etc... I've never been stung, but I'm scared to death of those..

I hate mosquitoes. I am an equal-opportunity offender when it comes to insects and other creatures that own more limbs than me (notice I didn't say "more feet" because I love cats!)

My family goes up to cottage country in Canada every summer, and we stay in cabins on a lake... It is beautiful during the day, but when the sun sets... We spray all of the screens and doors, and then we wait at the door when everyone comes in off the fishing boats. They get to go through the "swat patrol" which means: come through the door, stand like you're getting a security screening, and we swat all the ones that hung on to you when you came in.

I get most annoyed when I wake up in the morning and notice new mosquito bites all over my arms. Frightfully reminiscent of acne, and what's more, in an area where I can actually see them without a mirror.

IMissPiedmont-

How would that keep one from being bitten, though? They'd still have to bite initially to figure out your blood tastes bad.

EA-- Mosquitoes smell their target first. Obviously we humans can smell garlic, but they can also smell it, and they can smell a chemical that comes from human metabolism of the Vitamin B complex. Brewer's yeast contains a lot of Vitamin Bs, and I've heard of other people simply taking Vitamin B supplements.

Mosquitoes smell their target first.

I understand that, but is their sense of smell so keen that they can differentiate "good" tasting blood from "bad" tasting blood without breaking the skin?

OK....

Water that is fresh, is still water.

Water that is polluted smells horrible, but it is still water. Who wants to drink stinky water, if there's better water nearby?

Same principle. The garlic or Vitamin B changes the smell of human blood.

EA, a blood sucker will indeed stick it's probiscus in you, but if they are offended, they will not inject the anti-clotting substance. That is what causes the itch, not the initial probe.

Try the breswere yeast if you don't like garlic, It has no taste when mixed with breakfast.

PS: I haven't been chomped by a bloodsucker in over 20 years. Yes, we have them in Arizona.

Don't move to Alaska Clovis.

I seriously think the ones this year a larger then last year.

I have been clearing a lot of brush on my lot this week in an attempt to open it up and attract more birds to help eat the mosquitos.

As for the buzzing, a simple ceiling fan prevents you from hearing it. Not from being stinged, though... I got to know that during my student exchange to Brazil, and it seems like nothing could help; literally nothing. I took Vitamin B pills but got stinged no less. I used a kind of joss sticks that were supposed to keep them off - nothing but horrible reek.

But by the end of the year, I had become sort of immune to the itching; my immune system probably noticed that it didn't need to fight that anti-clotting stuff anymore, having learnt that when it fought scores of stings simultaneously. The highest number I counted was in the heighbourhood of 150, but I gave up then. Only thing that could probably have fought it is Autan, but you don't get that over there...  Sad
