Only this year? Being in Hampton since 2006 the mosquitos have been bad EVERY year. Trying to have cookouts in the backyard is impossible, even during the day.

We keep our grass super short, no standing water, and do everything possible to keep them at bay. Just doesn't work.

The city sends trucks spraying chemicals at night but that seems to make the Mosquitos double in numbers.

I guess when the city decided to leave pine trees along public walkways behind houses, they didn't expect them to hoard the Mosquito population.

Increased pests are always bad news.
We live out at the local beach and find few of them there.
I imagine Poquoson is gonna be unbearable this year.

Gonna buy an AK I reckon.
