Went to the garage yesterday to clean the carb on the power king. Cleaned up real nice and runs like a top. Went to put the air cleaner base on and got one screw in easily. I dropped the second one several times as I was being tormented by mosquitoes. Had the screw in my left hand and had enough of the mosquito buzzing my ear so I instinctively through my left hand up in its direction. You guessed it, heard the screw bounce off something at the far end of the garage. I found a new screw and completed the job. The war was now on. I stayed in the garage for another half hour killing every mosquito I could find. Did not hurt their numbers much I am sure but I feel better.

Get a bug zapper for the barn. I enjoy hearing the snap of a bug going to its doom. Good Luck, Rick

Love those bug zappers.  I also like the ones that look like tennis rackets.  I use bees as my tennis ball. :smilewink:

Its not even warm enough for the common house fly to hatch yet up here. i would try the glue strip or a citronella candle or tiki torch to help keep them away.
