I’ve already been ATE UP by mosquitoes since the end of March. I’m highly pissed with this.
Hot Weather To Bring Out Mosquitos Later This Week

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) - It’s a good time to make sure you’ve stocked up on bug spray, WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported.
A combination of a mild winter coupled with very warm and humid weather coming later this week will give a big boost to the mosquito population.
With that comes the West Nile Virus, according to Connecticut State Entomologist Dr. Theodore Andreadis.
“I would not be surprised if we see something in the next couple of weeks, and that would also include New York City, for example, as well,” Andreadis told Schneidau. “They have already detected the virus in several locations in Pennsylvania and in New Jersey as well, and we usually fall just a couple of weeks behind them.”
Andreadis said he would not be surprised to see human cases of the virus earlier than usual.
First bees, and now this.
What kind of backswamp am I living in? I didn’t sign up for this shit. I thought I left this insect foolishness down South…
