    I've noticed the same here in Va Beach and we have had very little rain. This has worked for me. Last year we were inundated with the pesky things. I broke down and bought this yardshield (by Echo) gizmo for your yard. It hooks up to a power blower (I don't have and echo but and el cheapo). It lays down a fine mist that you point at the ground and in and around shrubs. Sounded like a bunch of bull but I have to say this thing works. Set me back $99. Juice that goes into the backpack runs about $18 a bottle. Well worth it if you ask me. Lasts about 8-10 days with no rain then have to do it all over again. With rain of course more frequently.

    no problem here, if we do we catch them and send them to Greenback TN where they don't last long. As the blood is old and tried so they die real quick. :laugh: :laugh: :bleh: :bleh: :approve: :evil:

    Hollis, being an old mechanic and shop owner I really know what is causing all them skeeters at Rods. ;) It's all them old tires that we hold on to laying out in the weeds with water in them. :eek: :laugh: ;) . Them things will hold water from last years rain :laugh:

    Hmm, I was wondering why it flew off zig-zaging and hit the RV. I thought it died from contact with the RV.

    New warning out "All skeeters bite DL at your own risk" or you might be destined to a live of traveling and smelling diesel fumes :laugh:

    HMMM, DL said that skeeter was zig zaging. All travelers beware if you see a Dogde zig zaging because you then know DL has been smelling the fumes again :laugh: :laugh: ;) :evil:
