 Our county is doing their best to attack them but they are rampant here!

How are the skeeters in your area?

They weren't as bad this year as they were last year. Our county doesn't do anything to control them. It's left up to homeowners to fend for themselves. I have taken luke warm water put garlic in it (my brother suggested it), did not help. I've bought those citranella (spelling??) tiki things and put them around the seating and play area in my yard. I've sprayed and sprayed and sprayed myself and my son with repellant. While I was having a yard sale Saturday, I know I killed 4 or 5 of them nasty little things. They are attracted to my son more than anyone else. There must be standing water somewhere that I'm not finding for it to be so bad. My brother, 3 blocks from where I live, doesn't have a problem at all.

Not bad, that I've noticed.

I live less than 100 feet from a swamp.  I also have PLENTY of birds that eat mosquitoes.

They are more vicious this year.  I was working in the garden, and got this gigantic bites all over my leg, I couldn't believe how many I had.  Mosquitos never like my husband but he got 10 across his chest, with his shirt on.
