I live in Houston, one of the mosquito capitals of the US. If there's a mosquito anywhere in the county, I swear it will find ME to snack on. About a year ago someone reccomended a device called a Thermacell to me. Picked one up online from Amazon and it has been a God-send. I can finally enjoy spending evenings on the patio (with my knitting) and the little buggers stay away.
We even took it with us when we went camping near Lake Okeechobee in Florida and sat out by the campfire all night and not one single nibble!
Living life with an attitude of gratitude.
