Blood suckers

Why is it that after a natural disaster the mosquitoes are so freakin' bad?

They are huge! I mean these things are a the size of baseballs. OK well not that big but close.

They bite you and suck your blood and then infect you with West Nile. I know only the females bite to feed their babies, but please leave me and my babies alone.

Not even Off is helping. They just buzz around you looking for a fresh piece of skin. I can't even open the back door with out a swarm flying into my house.

I do have to say thank you to our county mosquito control who have been spraying the area. They are doing a great job.

But if you guys are reading this, could you please send in the planes and just bomb the entire area?

I can't stand mosquitoes! I feel for you. And I hope all the renovations go smoothly. Glad you got your electricity back!

I hate the things! I am so sorry you are having to deal with them now. Soon this will be a bad memory!

the first question I am going to ask God when I die is, "What was with the mosquitoes?" I hope He laughs.

I know. My little one is covered in bites after her soccer practices, even with the OFF spray.
