Seems like it doesn't matter how much sunblock and bug repellent I use I still get burned to a crisp and eaten alive.....

Maybe I'm just some sort of green-party liberal fuckhead BUT

My complete avoidance of those products and preference for shaded areas away from swamps has always led to comfortable camping and outdoors experiences.

Now the issue of the bear eating the peanut butter jar, that's a whole 'nuther story.:lol:

Or live across the river from one in Pennsylvania.

The chiggers, black flies, mosquitos and gnats are just dreadful this year in spite of the DEP's spraying efforts to suppress West Nile Virus. I switched from OFF to Cutter and am having slightly better luck with the Cutter, but the chiggers don't seem to be fazed by it either. Guess I'm going to have to spray my whole yard down with citronella or something..... :Mad:

Beneficial nematodes. They are tiny little bugs that eat larger bugs like chiggers and fleas. Completely safe as they don't tend to eat children and pets. There is also the option of spreading sulphur if you don't mind your yard smelling like shit for a little while. Sulphur also drives away snakes if that is a problem because snakes also think it smells like shit. Oh, and diatomaceous earth. Totally non toxic and kills damn near all ground level creepy crawlies. I don't think any of these will help with the airborne vampire problem, but it's a start.

You still need to figure out how to stop your nuts from glowing in the dark.:headpalm:


P.S.: Edith said, I need to get a cup of tea before I post here and have to edit it three times! :(

I find Cutter to be the most effective here in the woods of NW Jersey. You may also want to increase your consumption of garlic as well. It does the same with insects as it does with vampires.

Shooting mosquitos and horseflies with lazers! COOL IDEA!!! If you want to have a mosquito shooting contest at my place, you bring the lazers and I'll supply the pizza and beer.... :beer:

And to the rest of you, if you have a spare 15 minutes, the lecture that Nutmeg linked to is quite an informative way to spend it! :Thumbsup: :Thumbsup:
