Not at all being sarcastic. It is still hot here. We are having a later than usual warm trend. To me, summer never ended and fall decided to skip the prom altogether. It has been between 95-89 lately as a high. No rain. No cool breeze. Kinda missing out here.

I used to go camping by a creek close to Camp Verde and I'd be the only one with literally hundreds of mosquito bites. I chalked it up to my blood type, which is AB+, and rare. Maybe they like the flavor?!

We also have a fogger come by our neighborhood once per month. Maybe that's why people don't think we have mosquitos

You are aware I am assuming that there are no burn days? It is mentioned on the news. It deals with the brown cloud of pollution and hazards in the air.

Yes, and you can be fined if caught burning on a high ozone day/no burn day.

Oh course we have mosquitoes, but nothing like some other states. I saw a few swarms in late June 2000 in upstate NY that I could barely see through. That's probably why it's their State Bird. And in Alabama at Ft McClellan during July- September 1975, they were everywhere, and some looked big enough to carry away a small dog! We get a few out here in the east valley, but not many. I don't think we've had more than five in the house all year.

Good one, aj!

Have you ever spent time in the "upper Mid-West" region? Those buggers are about the size of small cats and THEY BITE, not just sting.

I agree with you, we do have mosquitoes but nothing compared to the rest of the country.

They dont bite OR sting. They inject their proboscis into your skin.

I was going to say the same thing, but I didn't want to nitpick

I like to nitpick, gets the facts out there. And besides, mosquitos can be a nuisance, no doubt, but Id rather deal with those than a scorp sting. Ouch.
