Mosquito bites

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

I hate them! Pesky, little, hungry, blood-sucking critters. What on God's green earth purpose do they fill? And why on earth do I forget to spray on protection? We moved from central North Carolina to coastal North Carolina last fall. The squeeters were huge in central NC. If you sat outside for an evening, you saw them and got the spray. The ones here are tiny....noiseless. I've forgotten to spray so many times since we moved here. In fact, my body has a delayed reaction to bites. My son and his girlfriend came for dinner Sunday night. We sat outside, it was a beautiful evening. Then yesterday, I noticed welts...itchy, angry welts. Two days after my exposure! I never saw them, heard them, or felt them. Nasty critters. Thank God for benadryl spray. Gonna have to do better at arming myself when outside! Have a great Sparkly day!

    Sorry to hear how you react to those pests as I do the same. As a kid I always got big welts and used baking soda, ammonia, and whatever my mother suggested as back then we didn't have commercial sprays. Left NC and am in FL and am just sure not to be out after sunset.
