    Probably smell and taste horrible :)


    Unfortunately the bat population is way down, they normally eat hundreds of mosquitoes a day.

    One killed my friend's dad a few years ago. Many people thought he was joking - I mean, this was NJ, not the Amazon rainforest. Tics are bad mutherfukers too.

    The group of kids I ran with would chase the Skeeter Truck with our eyes watering, barely able to see. What were we thinking?

    Nothing was bad for you back then. We'd chase the truck with a smoke in one hand and Scotch stolen from our parents bar cart in the other.

    The apple cider/vinegar drink seems to work also.

    Read up on the nonsensical reason that DDT is banned.

    When I was 12, I lost a 11 year old cousin to a mosquito. She got sick, was in a coma for a few months, and never woke up.

    Hope I live to see them CRISPR'd out of existence.

    Sorry, but this post is nonsense.

    Please read up on Rachel Carson, or better, actually read Silent Spring so you have an understanding of exactly what was at stake.

    Jeeesh.

    You have to love the double benefits from a good gin and tonic. Kinda like mixing Chivas and Slim Fast - get drunk AND lose weight!

    When I arrived in Iraq the bug zapper was our TV until the outgoing unit left and we took over their hooches.
