If I'm by myself out in the yard, I am. If I have DH, he is, and draws their attention away from me, which I much prefer.

Himself and I will sit out on the front porch every once in a while. When I start to go in for the night he grabs my hand and says "don't leave me". Is is because he loves me deeply and will miss me? Heck no. It's because he's losing his mosquito magnet.

Next time he reaches out for you, slap a can of OFF into his hand.

Good idea, Andy. I've learned from earlier in the discussion that I should not hand him a beer.

That's funny!

We don't have many skeeters here in the valley, it's too dry for them. Sometimes they'll hang around homes where there are birdbaths or horse water troughs, but for the most part they're not a problem, thank goodness. I'm a magnet too, when we go up to the river.

I'll happily send you my mosquitos, Cheryl! Along with our rain. Talked with our dog boarder, who lives about a mile away, and she had 3" in her rain gauge.

You had me going there for a second. "How sweet. He enjoys having her at his side." Then I finished reading it.

I've had maybe 10 mosquito bites in my whole life. Mosquito's and other creepy critters aren't a problem here in general. However, when we are in Hawaii and other places, Steve will be eaten alive and not me.

The latest study says it's all in your DNA so I'm very thankful for good genes. Now you can blame your family for your bites!! ...Check this out..
Mosquito bites: a matter of genetics

It is Genes determine blood type and other chemical characteristics of the body.
