This rain has actually been falling off and on for months.
The ground had become saturated and all it took for disaster were a few slow moving low pressure systems dumping buckets of rain (plus one totally failed dam and another leaking and in danger of breaking any min now)
Well that plus the fact that Houston was built on a swamp (think New Orleans without the Mississippi River).
Sorry drifting OT (one of my worst habits lol)
The mosquitos have been horrible!
The city is spraying twice per week (I know, I know ..... but the good outweighs the bad)
I police the yard a few times every day looking for standing water (swing set gets a toweling off as well) and using a pool dip net to check the koi pond ( between the frog and mosquito eggs those guys are getting a bit chubby lol).
Just walking from the house to the car produces at least two bites.
Doesn't matter how fast we open and close doors a few are able to get in and feast.
Speaking of feast, those suckers can bite thru blue jeans and long sleeve shirts!
Refuse to use the spray products and that thing you clip on your belt or wherever is totally useless!
Have been online and tried a few homeopathic "solutions" but I guess these pests have mutated .
Anyone out there wanna lend a girl a hand?
