The Mossies Are Bad This Year.


Anyone else having a problem with mozzies? They've been driving me mad over the past few weeks and unlike respectable mossie bites whose itch goes away when you spray Stingose, they become raised lumps about the size of a one cent piece, they itch like mad, the skin breaks from all that scratching, then they scab over. And they last for weeks. Most everybody I've spoken to here says the same.
Even applying insect repellent doesn't seem to work - if you've missed a tiny bit of skin, as sure as Bob's you're uncle, those little buggers will zoom in like a bomber on steriods and find it!

I've applied so much calamine lotion, I resemble a beached, polka dot blob. Is the rest of Australia suffering from a mossie plague, or is it just in my area?

The Aussie Mossie

One of my favourite songs about Aussie animals. As the opening words state -

There's a little Aussie mossie
In her little Aussie cossie
And she's looking for a possie
On your unprotected skin
When she's finished her inspection
She will give you an injection
And you'll have an itch to show you
Where the Aussie mossie's been.


I remembered I had one of those mossie clickers - you know the things - you place it over the bite and click the end in.

It transmits some sort of electric current and is said to stop the irritating itch. Well.......it has worked well in the past but this time it isn't quite as effective. I do believe we are breeding super mossies who are able to withstand just about anything that'll deter the little blighters.

Did you know?
That a mosquito can smell you from around 30 metres away? That's about 300 feet for those who still use imperial. They don't have very good eyesight but there sense of smell is perfect.

Some are of the opinion we are seeing so many mossies because of our recent wet weather and humid conditions. That may be true, but we had hoardes of them before it became humid. And the funny thing is you rarely hear them making that well-known humming sound. Reckon they've become smarter.

Now, if only there was such a thing as the common cold for mossies.
Why didn't Noah swat the pair of mossies before they entered the Ark?
