survival of the cutest

these hot summer days (yes, hot, in belgium) mosquitoes are a real nuisance... they get in my room while I'm reading my books after dark, and wait until I'm half asleep to start zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz-ing around my ear. if you want to suck my blood, just do it and the hell with the noise. let me sleep!!! for the moment, I amuse my present and past sleeping partner by waking in the middle of the night and going hunting. pretty refined tactics, too, now I know they tend to hide on the underside of ledges in furnitures. the little bastards are very good at this... may be one day we will move to another planet, and will not bring the with us... we will finally get rid of them... but... is this going to be such a good idea? here's a nice comic strip on the subject...

I still don't understand why you don't use this fantastic invention known as the bug killer plug (well straight translated from french actually) made by the chemical industry.
Just a fantastic invention...
You can if you want to be more "green" used old school burning candle...

It's up to you ;)


have fun

I guess you mean the VAPE plug. I'm sorry to say that long years of trial in Sardinia have shown that most mosquitoes simply do not care. and frankly, I do mind the smell. I'm now thinking to exploit the particular attraction of insects towards UV light with one of those zapper lamps, qhere a high tension grid surrounds a neon UV tube. No more mosquiotes, plus, I get to see them to explode in midair, and some tan on my skin if I stay close enough...
