May and June...I hate it. No fun.
between the ticks and the mosquitoes
And I this time of year with all the critters in the woods out and about, I have to be real careful with the dogs off leash, so our outings have consisted of briskly walking on the road leashed just fast enough to try and outrun the mosquitoes.
This morning everytime the poor girls wanted to stop for a sniff I get all cranky and yelling "C'mon, lets go! Holy Crap..c'mon!" as we are being swarmed by bugs....
the mosquitoes are literally hanging all over Lucy's belly...
when we do get home, I have to pull ticks..sometimes as many as 3-4 on each of them..GROSS!!!!!
bug spray keeps them off me to a point but not enough.
I hear you - the ticks have just been horrible this year! And when they get better, the chiggers start in - even worse cuz you can't pick them off. And now it is baby rabbit season! Emilu got her first one last night - Ugh!
You forgot the gnats. I got bitten so badly last Sunday that my left eye was swollen shut for two days. I'm with Regina, I love winter. LOL
Ugh! I would hate that. I forget how nice it is to live without the bugs.

This has been one of the dryest springs in Syracuse history so the bug population has been down. Mosquitoes don't bother me because I can use bug spray. The problem is black flies, they just laugh at repellents.
I agree; so bad this year!!Originally Posted by patm
We've also had bad gnats lately! :P
Here too, it's all about the dreaded black flies........ as soon as they go away, the deer flies start in.......
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Ugh. I hate ticks. I heard it was going to be a bad year here too. Have already found several dog ticks on me while working in the yard. At least not the dreaded dear tick. Those things are hard to find and real buggers to pull out.
Have you tried that Avon Skin so Soft?
Missing you, my friend.
