my mosquito

bites look exactly like

chigger bites.

and they don't burrow under the skin.

and i still hate mosquitos but i hate chiggers even more.

The trick is to put nail polish on the chigger bites. It suffocates them.

Next up:
deer flies, fire ants and no see ums.

And I forgot to add you can burn off a tick with a hot match. Make sure to get out its pincers too.

My grandmother would hold me down, burn off the tick, and throw it in toilet -- where it would make a singing noise from the heat.

Well, no-see-ums are found in coastal areas.

there are no bugs here. I forget about bugs. although i did see mice running around the bart track in mission last night. Can you hear cicadas though? That is a cool sound.
