I am a mosquito magnet. Worst case happened unknowingly. I was sitting with Dave and some friends in the backyard at the house of one of their parents–legs coated with my then favorite lotion, Nivea. Let’s just say the scent was the sweetest thing mosquitoes in that suburb of Seattle had ever smelled. I woke up with 36 bites on my feet, ankles and legs. Honestly did not feel a single sting or pinch or blood draw as they happened. But for the following two weeks I was only comfortable in the shower with water running on the raised lumps. Thankfully West Nile escaped me. I share this bad memory to request assistance for a planned barbecue on our grass. What works for you to keep backyard get-togethers bug-free?
