Repellant



7 comments:

  1. Pwe EHow, repellents work by discouraging insects from landing and climbing on treated surfaces, and therefore, biting treated skin. Repellents are not pesticides or insecticides and do not kill insects. I'm just glad they work.

    1. Ah, I'm glad to hear that too, thanks for the info. I mean, I don't really mind so much that they need my blood (unless I were in a tropical country where I could get dengue fever or malaria or something), but I hate it that it itches so much! gaaah

  2. Pwe = Per. Oops.

  3. Ugh, I have a real bad allergy to mosquito bites, and very few repellants work for me, I have no idea why. Thankfully, in my city it's cold most of the time (and this is one of the reasons why I really HATE summertime).
    Also, if there was a big pile of poop in front of a restaurant I would be discouraged to eat there, even if I was starving, I would look for another restaurant. Unless the first one had a very good lasagna.
    Guess my blood is like lasagna for mosquitoes?
    Ok, I really should sleep now.

  4. I accidentally read 'bad door'. SLAM! Sorry.

    Frankfurt is a mosquito-free heaven, despite the big river running through it. I dunno why, but I'm grateful as I'm actually allergic to them. I'll make sure to prepare though, next time I visit Berlin--which will prolly be in summer. Ack.

    1. Really?! How does that work? Anyway, not to worry, it seems the mosquitoes have died out because of the freak change in weather. YAY but UGH for random thunderstorms and unpredictable weather!
