mosquitos
« on: April 19, 2011, 09:32:37 AM »
Wow!  Wifey and I went out to wilderness park yesterday from about 3:30-6pm.  I coundln't believe the amount of mosquitos that were out there!  I've been out on those trails about 6 or 8 times, and I've never seen them swarming so badly.  It was unbelieveable, really!  My question in...Was it the time of day or maybe because of the standing water left from the heavy rains a few weeks back?  Or is this a seasonal thing that just has to be dealt with?  They weren't too bad as long while we were moving, but I couldn't imagine having to deal with a break down or flat! Ugh!

They will be there this time of the year. Don't leave home without skeeter protection, for any of our trails.

I was there at 11:00am-ish yesterday and it was just as bad. Once you stop your done....
It was equally bad on the Tuesday night ride which is happening tonight.

I may attend but will bring a gallon of repellant or a full hazmat suit...

They're attracted to your socks.

No kidding!  I may invest in a beekeepers suit.  LOL!
