I reccommend getting a couple of cheap racketball rackets, for use, as swatters. All a swatter need do is nick a skeeter, with the strings, and the wounds will prove fatal, to Ms.Bug.

BTW, the females are the biters, which need a blood meal, to reproduce, so don't let 'em get your juice.

I carry a tennis racket, a lot of the time, so if I think little buzzards are out and about, it's time for some racket head-speed drills.

So exactly where did these mosquitoes come from, if not Egypt, and how did they get here?
