VENT! I just got 8 mosquito bites!!!

I just went outside to do a little weeding. I was out for about 20 minutes and I got 8 mosquito bites on my legs!!! Little EF'ers! I actually watched them attack me and I squished 1 with blood! MY BLOOD!!! Thats it, time to let the weeds just grow. My neighbor must have standing water in his yard. GRRRRRRR.............................

  • A little old black lady my mom is good friends with told us a trick and it works. When you are out weeding, place a small pail of kerosene next to you...they hate the smell. I love her tips! She also makes the worlds best fried chicken and sun tea I have ever had! Thanks Hatti!

  • I got 39 of them Friday evening. Two on my BUTT! I feel your pain! I've found ice on the bites help wonders. It cuts the swelling and takes the itch away. Also benadryl if it's real bad will stop the itch after about half an hour.
    If I just take the trash out I get 5 or more bites. haven't figured out how to prevent them since Nothing works but, Buddy, I can fix them!
    Feel better!
