i only hate the female ones, the males are actually pollenators :p and idk if your up to date on environmental issues but were running very low on pollenators, there are actually places in china where they have killed off all the bees with pesticides and stuff so now they have to go around with a little container of pollen and a paintbrush and individually fertilize every blossom on plants.

nature provides us alot of services we take for granted :/

Ben, check this out. My family don't need repellin for mosquitos. All they do is stand close to me, then they don't get any bites. I think my best was 26+ bite in about 10 minutes; 10+ was on my head when I use to have no hair.

LOL, Charles. My dad is the opposite. He is vrtually invisible to mosquitoes. We can be getting eaten alive and he won't have one bite.

HAHAHAHA This thread is hilarious! Keep going =)
And I'm fine with mosquitos, they hardly ever bite me, even when they do, it's gone in an hour or two~ Not sure~

I'm sort of neutral to mosquitos (get bitten a bit but not excessive).

My sister has what I call "sweet blood" because mosquitos absolutely love her. She's like Charles. Stay near her & she gets all the bites (what a great sister;))

Growing up in a tropical country, I got used to them and they are part of your everyday life. In Vancouver, they are not bad at all so I don't notice them at all but yeah, I don't think many people like mosquitoes.

B.C. mosquitoes are NOTHING compared to what's in winnipeg or ontario. This year is the worst there in 25 years. I went there for 5 days a few weeks back and when I got to winnipeg the walk from the airport to the car cost me 18 bites, I'm going back again at the end of the month, this time I will be prepared.:)

had a similiar experience in transylvania (a hungarian part of romania) last year, they were soo bad and there were swarms of them, they followed us into the car and we continued to get bit until we squished them all against the windows.

Alot of us have co2 tanks, isnt there anyway we could rig something up using it to kill them or avoid being eaten outdoors.. I know there are alot of mosquito traps online that use propane and co2 tanks..

just a thought.
