Worse than mosquitoes are biting gnats!

Went on a long drive to Wakulla Springs Park, FL to enjoy a picnic lunch. Some of the scenes from the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan movies were filmed there.

Well those little bastards were laying in wait. I'd never heard of biting gnats before, so I was the perfect victim for these flesh eating varmints.

They turned what was supposed to be a lovely picnic lunch into pure misery! gaah.gif

They kept biting and biting to the point where they drew blood from my forehead. They actually took tiny bits of flesh. I'm tellin' ya, with enough bites, you started to disappear. Those effing bugs probably sat around a campfire and talked about what a great day they had eating one of the the Spring visitors.

There was a hotel on the property with a gift shop. They had bug spray. I told the man that as long as it was under $100, I'm buying it. Of course the can was way over priced (Something like $7) but it seemed like a bargain at the time.

You got that right. They saw me get out of the car with our carefully prepared lunch and elbowed each other saying, "I got dibs on the plump one!" "NO, I do!" "Nope, I do!"

In the end, they had trouble flying back to their bungalows they were so laden with blood and flesh.

Hey JR, I always thought they had a preference to particular blood types.

Quote:In addition, there is some evidence that heavy consumption of garlic through supplements or well-flavored foods may help ward off mosquitoes. When garlic is eaten and its components are metabolized, compounds are released from the body through the skin and the breath. Although they may not be detectable by others (or may, in the case of garlic breath!), mosquitoes use smell to locate a host. For example, carbon dioxide and lactic acid released from the breath of humans are two known mosquito attractants that can be detected within 40 yards. While it has not been proven through clinical studies, it is thought that the sulfur compounds present on the skin and in the breath after eating garlic may help ward off those pesky mosquitoes.


So, JR, why not add lots of garlic to your home brew?

Yes. thumbsup.gif No. bleh.gif

Hey now! chuckle.gif

We eat a lot of garlic as it is. Adding it to the home brew is just not an option. damned.gif
