    Default How many mosquitoes?

    This is my son Simon earlier this year in Nuiqsut. We were using coleman bug spray. I don't think it works!

    Default Houston, we have a problem!

    That sure looks like somethings not working. There has to be 150 skeeters there! They seem to be focused right on the hot point of the human body or they may be attracted to the black color itself. His neck and shoulders dont seem to have that concentration of skeeters on them. Was the top of the hat sprayed also??

    My girls would have freaked out!! Looks like he's still having a good time fishing though:D

    I read somewhere that mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors esp. dark blue, heat, and of course CO2. The trick is to get a half dozen or so little guys, wearing dark colored clothing, running around camp (putting off a bunch of heat and CO2) then you can relax in your lounge chair, with your ice cold beer, virtually unmolested by the mosquitoes:D.
