Swarms of insects? Haven't seen it in Spring Hill and I sit on my deck overlooking my pond every evening. My cats are expert snake hunters and they havent brought home any recently. True that snakes do like dry ground. Wet ground can give them skin infections and fungus.

Mosquitoes plague Florida counties

"Florida officials say a late-starting mosquito season has turned into one of the worst they can remember, with swarms of the insects plaguing neighborhoods."

Oh, just in case I've been living in a bubble in Florida for over 17 years, I decided to add another Google search. This time I typed "Florida" and "snakes." Here's a news report from last week.

Snakes-slithering-into-southwest-Florida

"The location is odd for sure, but calls for snakes are not. Flavelle says he's noticed an increase in snake calls the last couple of weeks.

Experts say the snakes are looking for higher, drier ground."

For some the "newness" never wears off.

The mosquitoes are pretty awful right now, we cant sit out on our dock and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening anymore, and wont be able to til the first frost.

Again you post yet another negative. Like I said before are you negative about everything?

The newness will never wear, if it begins to we will just move to another area in Florida and the newness will start all over again.

Why are you still in Florida if it is so bad? Why be so unhappy and miserable since 1989?

No mosquitoes in our caged pool thus far. We were swimming at midnight last night with no problems.

Thank you.

For some, the majority, it will never wear off if you are happy and active.

If you are unhappy and not very active you get bored and become upset and take a great positive thread and find a way to push in the negatives into it.

I think perhaps you might have negativity confused with reality.
For the record, I have never said I was miserable or unhappy, why are you attempting to put words in my mouth?

Bummer. I would bet that mosquitoes would be found right along the water or close to a big pond of any kind. That's where they breed.
But without being right on water, I have no problem with them.
Ants. Now those are another story.
