The battle continues

An unexpected consequence of the cooling temperatures has been the migration of mosquitoes into our apartment. Outside walks are pleasant and rarely do we flail miserably about trying to squash the buzzing pest. However, nighttime has become an itchy experience. We can wake in the morning and have hands completely chewed up. It's like one of the little blood suckers went down the arterial highway sucking every few stops. Or, a constant hum creeps into our ears as flybys get closer and closer.

Our latest attempt to stop these monsters was to purchase a mosquito net. For some strange reason, it was hard to find - isn't this a problem for everyone? We had a peaceful night last night. Here's to hoping that we've found a permanent cure for mosquito nightmares.
