Let me start out by saying "I HATE MOSQUITOES" more than anything. These horrible little blood sucking insects are on the loose and biting anyone and everyone in sight.

Let me give you an example:

This past Saturday, my wife and I tried to go for a walk in the neighborhood, but we didn't make it around the first block because there were swarms of mosquitoes coming at us from all directions.

So we decided to head home immediately. When we got home, we tried to open the front door but we had a little bit of a problem, there were at least ten mosquitoes hovering around our front door waiting to attack us at any given moment.

So we quickly ran around the house to a different entry door and finally made it inside the house without losing a drop of blood to those blood sucking termites.

If I had to guess as to the biggest reason for mosquitoes being out of control here in Michigan, it has to be the humidity lately and issues with heavy rain and then crazy summer heat. None of us know exactly why we're dealing with millions of mosquitoes.

Let's get to the bottom of this right now. According to bridgemi.com:

Female Summer Floodwater mosquitoes suck the blood of animals and lay eggs in low lying grassy areas like along roadways, roadside ditches and grassy swales their entire lifespan, which lasts about three weeks. They can lay hundreds of eggs up to possibly six times before they die, Walker said. When water inundates areas where mosquitoes laid eggs, the eggs hatch and mosquitoes emerge as adults a week to 10 days later.

All I can say is run to the nearest store and stock up on bug killer and bug spray. I won't go anywhere now without full bug spray cans.

Summer's not over with yet, and these annoying mosquitoes are sticking around until the end of summer.
