first mosquito bites of 2020

Post by Chip Down » January 3rd, 2020, 10:40 pm

I have an itchy bump on my right arm. I know, you're thinking it was caused by something besides a mosquito. But I actually felt one pierce my left shoulder. Looked over and was shocked to see a mosquito, plain as day, no question. Before today, I've never seen a mosquito between mid October and mid February. I don't like where this is going.

I had a mosquito in my car on January 1st. It was very short lived.

Ticks and mosquitoes are loving climate change, much to our detriment!
