    I get them in every season but winter. Thing that 'bugs' me is that I'm allergic to them so some become huge and they hurt rather than itch. A couple of years ago one even resulted in blood poisening. I have 3 or 4 atm, luckily they're staying rather small and itchy. I guess they like my sweet blood.

    I got zero, did u do, mosquito's have the record for the most dangerous animal (or something along those lines). Saw it on Guiness World Records, they kill the most people from the dieases they carry

    " "The world's most dangerous animal is the mosquito," according to a BBC World Service health program: malaria now infects approximately 110 million people annually, causing 2-3 million deaths, and with increasing drug resistance, the problem is worsening, while attempts to control the mosquitoes with pesticides have proved ineffective."

    I spent 2 weeks in Alaska and got way more than ten! They are everywhere!

    BTW - mosquito sprays DO NOT work! I even tried a 100% DEET spray but the little buggers didn't seem to mind lol
