Actually, my skeeters are IN. Don't know how they're getting in.....some of them are the size of jumbo jets, or at least June-bug (is there possibly a WORSE flying bug, anywhere?) sized.

The other night I opened my back door, messed with the dog for a little bit, went back in and up to bed, sat on my bed, thought to myself "Self, WTH is that noise?" Went over to the vanity area to get ready for bed, and a FRIGGIN JUNE BUG fell out of my hair and onto the floor. I am still scraping bits of my skin and blood off the ceiling, and I'm sure there are several months of my life expectancy just gone, in an instant. Be careful out there with those nasty bugs, is all I'm sayin'.

I was wondering about the June bugs being out in April too. That explains the grub worm problems people are talking about. Aren't June Bugs grown up grubs? I dunno....

Yes, I had the privilege of digging up a grub in my front flower bed and no matter how many times you see one, nothing can prepare you for how utterly gross and scary they are. Nasty little buggers.

Those super huge giant mosquitoes are Mosquito hawks(crane flies) they luckily do not eat on people. downside of looking like a mosquito though is that everyone wants it dead.
