    Indoor Mosquito Trap That Works?

    Halp!! Some of the little bastards got in somehow, and I am waking up every day all bit up somethin' fierce.

    Any suggestions? To quote Sally Field, "They LIKE me, they REALLY like me!".

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    Homer: I believe that children are our future. Unless we stop them now.

    Without a water source, they will die in a couple of days. Plug your drains, keep your toilet seats closed, and don't have any vases with water in the house.

    If you’re waking up to it, are you sure it isn’t bed bugs?

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Short of leaving a door wide open, I doubt you're getting bitten by mosquitoes every night. Only the females take blood and its for egg production. As others have said, leave water sources covered or emptied and the problem goes away.

    Otherwise it is probably bed bugs.

    I think I’ve outlasted the little suckers... far fewer bites lately.

    Either that or they’re not digging that Russian nerve agent I was exposed to last week.

    I got my wife one of those jawns for mothers day. She was not impressed... until we had the first big fly in the house a few weeks ago. Then she was all like "Hey, where's that electronic flyswatter you gave me?"

    The skeeter zapper I was talking about is one of these:



    Snap crackle pop. Problem solved.

    I have a big one outside. I have to take the compressor to it every other day, so many skeeters that you can no longer see the light
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I always heard that the ideal place for one of those things is your neighbor's porch.

    That's a great crunchy source of protein. With milk and some sugar, they probably have the same flavor and consistency as a bowl of Rice Krispies. Or you could mix them with marshmallows and butter and make a batch of skeeter treats for the kids.
