The only place we've had mosquitos is the one place we do not have a lot of anoles--the lath house. I think I'm going to try one of those pyrithrin [however it's spelled] bug bombs in the lath house one of these days.

I hear thunder. Maybe rain's on the way.

Well Kitty. it's true I have been trying to avoid DEET, but I may not
have a choice. I spend every evening and most of the weekend outside and
just have reached my tolerance level for being bitten on. Plus there's a
case of West Nile in Dallas already. I do not need that. Thanks for the
tip dear.

If I just have a little to do outside, I just move fast and get done

quickly, while smacking them. Otherwise, I use Deep Woods Off - High Deet -

something you probably wouldn't want to use. I hate the smell so I have to

shower when I'm done.

&#65279;OK, before these monsters carry me off, what do y'all use for



I've been using the Avon Skin So Soft BugGuard plus w/ pretty good results



years, but this year?? Might as well sprinkle sugar water on myself and



knives and forks to my skin and set the table. Whacked one tonight that



size of a small wasp. I don't know what the deal is but I'm getting eaten


I was spraying myself earlier and before I got done, they were landing on



biting. This has got to stop.
