Possibly Helpful Trivia

Mosquito repellents don’t repel; they hide you. The spray or lotion blocks the mosquito’s sensors; however, it will seek out unprotected areas of skin.

Ah, and just when I thought I was safe from attack!

Any mosquito dumb enough to stray across our fence meets the Hit Critters. Mosquitoes attempt to lay their eggs in the pond and the fish snatch them off the top of the water. Any eggs laid get eaten. The frogs, the dragonflies and damselflies eat up the rest. No mosquitoes. :-)

That's great! Maybe I need to have a pond.

After living in South Flroida--aka mosquitoville--I learned all about repellents.
Used to do a repellent dip sometimes before we went out.
Madness!
