Each morning there was over an inch of dead mosquitos in the bottom of that washtub. To say there are a lot of bugs in So AR is an understatement.

When I think of So. AR I think of Tunica, Mississippi as they are not far apart. I remember going to Tunica for a few days about 10 or so years ago. When we went to valet, outside the casino/hotel we were staying in i it was about 7:30 in the morning. Not only was it unbelievably hot and humid the mosquitos were everywhere.. I swore I would never go back to that area again in the middle or late summer. The valet guys and gals were using spray just to keep the stupid things away from everyone.
