Mosquitos


Bo and the kiddos went outside yesterday to play. They were outside MAYBE 10 minutes. MAYBE. They came back in covered with mosquitos.
It's the middle of November people, and we are STILL being attacked by those little (little--HA!) buggers. It is so incredibly frustrating. My kids beg every day to go outside, and they can't. Bug spray doesn't help at all.
One of the reasons we moved into the house we are in is because of the yard. What good is a yard if the kids can never play in it????????? I counted at least 19--NINETEEN!! bites on Meg this morning! Oh I am soooooooo frustrated. I can't wait to leave Galveston.

Seriously. I keep wondering when they are going to go away.
I don't even like opening my front door for people because they are STILL so bad. I'm super sick of them!

I can't believe bug spray doesn't work here! It's way annoying. I really hope they die soon!

Korbi said...

wow, that's a lot of bug bites! Have you tried Listerine mouth wash? put it in a spray bottle and dose your kids with a little spray here and there. It worked when we were in Oregon, maybe it will work for you?? Best wishes!

It's supposed to drop to the 40's this week...maybe that'll freeze 'em.

I think those are zits. The mosquito thing is a good cover though. I almost believed you. :P

I hear ya, Cass. Carsen gets it the worst in our family! He swells up like a sponge in water! Here's hoping the cold weather kills 'em all...

One word DEET. There isn't a mosquito alive that will mess with it.

Dang! We certainly don't miss that part of Galveston! I remember that the mosquitos are gone for only like a month out of the year. bummer!

Poor little Meg. Sorry about the mosquito situation. I remember when we went to Canada mosquitos were beasts. We try everything. WE bough spray and candles and killers lighters EVERYTHING. That was the only way we could enjoyed our vacation. At least you don't have to live there all your life:)
