I’m sure many others are in the same boat, trying to keep these suckers out of your home and away from your ears, especially when sleeping. Any tips? Lately my sleep has sucked because these things are torturing me…even if I’m trying to cover most of my head with a fan on me they seem to get through. Not being swarmed or anything but even one a night can mess up my sleep.
I’m living next to a river so for maybe 3 months a year it’s all out armageddon. I’ve taped over holes they can come in from and the bottom of doors with space under them, I lock down my place before dusk, including closing all doors and windows (not just the screens cause they can fly between the two and slip inside) but there are always a handful getting in and making things kind of annoying. Even with electric racket sweeps. Will they also manage to come in through the AC units? This is the only other possible way I can see them slipping in, but I’ve never had actual evidence of them getting in that way. Drains and stove exhaust are also possible but I don’t notice a lot of them in these areas. I suppose they could also be hiding out in plants during the day while my doors/windows are open.
I used to use those chip things you plug in and burn…they make the mosquitos high or something…unfortunately it feels like they give you brain damage/a carcinogen meal as well.
Are there any light tricks to use? Like keeping all lights near access areas off/as low as possible? Or having lights on outside but off inside? Do those light zapper things actually work well with mosquitos? From everything I’ve read, lights don’t affect them much, but thought I’d ask. I guess a bed net is an option but I’d prefer some kind of solution where I keep more out of my place, period.
I hate skeets.
