Really? does thw whining sound of bloodsuckers landing on you and biting, not bother you at all???
For the small number of them that I've encountered here, not really.



You've been lucky so far, Zed. Do you have aircon? When I had aircon I never noticed mogies because I never had to open the window and mogie's hate cold.

If you don't have one, I betyour luck runs out soon. Now that you're thinking about them you're gonna feel the sting of a zillion angry zappers! Twisted Evil

I never had air-con before now but I don't like cold either. I'm either lucky or not as sensitive to them as others I guess.

Vitamin B wards off mosquitos?

For successful sleep in Korea, you must have a) a mosquito net b)ear plugs to block out the noise from the street c) work out regularly to make you tired on time d) Keep off the caffiene and cigarettes


Interesting.


I use screens on my windows.
No ear plugs as I live high enough not hear the traffic and one side of the building is on a mountain side.
I do work out but in the morning.
I drink coffee in the afternoon.

And....(drum roll)

I sleep like a baby.

I guess it varies from people to people.

Back home I lived in a busy city neighborhood so noise is the same...I take no notice.
Mosquitoes...at my parents place in the country you cannot stay outside at night they are so many of them.

I get the odd stinger and sucker in the house but not that many (we are lucky).

If there is one buzzing around my apartment, I just put a little repellant around my shoulders. Nothing like what I had in Alaska! What's a few mozzies!

Southern Maryland = penninsula = mosquitos.

I'm curious as to what I get here... I've travelled everywhere in America during the summer and the worst I've seen is still at home (worse than the swamps of Florida).

I do however want to get an A/C... just not sure how it'll work with this whole lack of windows thing my apartment has...

I expect that you could avoid the worst of it by going at a particular time of year like August perhaps.

I wonder if they are doing anything about the problem or if they cant because of environmental laws against chemicals or whatever.

Yeah, why don't they just ask Exxon for advice?
