Mosquito Repellant Watch

Luckily we had a mosquito netting over the bed which stopped most of them, but another approach is to get a MOSQUITO REPELLER WATCH! Here's how it works - taken from their site:

'Are you ready for mosquito season? Over the next few months these blood sucking rascals will begin hatching in untold numbers as they prepare for fresh victims. But there is a defense for these miniature would-be vampires. The Mosquito Repeller Travel Alarm Clock or Wrist Watch. While they seem innocent at first sight, you�ll find them to be your best ally against these blood sucking fiends. Whether used for camping, fishing, traveling or simply staying at home they�re the best way to keep mosquitoes at bay. Scientists discovered that most mosquitoes that feed on human blood are pregnant females. Well if there is one thing a pregnant mosquito doesn�t like, it�s a male. In fact they dislike males so much that they fly as far away as possible. The Mosquito Repeller Travel Alarm Clock and the Wrist Watch were designed with advanced harmonics circuitry to emulate and emit the ultra sonic high frequency of an approaching male. Just like that the blood suckers that haunt your sleep or infest your jogging path are vanquished. Alarm clock uses two AA batteries (not included). In today�s world of disease carrying mosquitoes this could be the best way to ensure a happy and healthy summer. It certainly beats eating garlic or slathering ourselves with stinky goop.'



They must have a mating season or something, though, before they become pregnant. Which means all those females that are not pregnant yet, would be attracted. They may not bite, but it could still be creepy...

Whoa...living in Minnesota I could really use that. The Mosquito is our state bird...sort of...if it were a bird.

I could have used that when I cycled for the Bible Society in India last year. One of the places we stayed overnight was buzzing with mozzies. Not a pleasant thought.

We had mosquito coils burning near our heads and we still had to sleep completely under our covers. I think they saw the coils as a challenge.
