Driving me buggy

I just spent over two hours counting mosquitoes, including one sample that contained 800+ mosquitoes which had to be separated from about 800+ other insects. All this rain has created wonderful breeding sites, and the mosquitoes are taking advantage of this.
And know what else?
It's still raining.

Oh my gosh.... I hope you are keeping your head above water and insect. It has been really wet in South Dakota and I need to get my roof replaced. I'm praying for 1 week of dry weather. Just one.

Deb, we have some different jobs, don't we? It's been raining off in on here in Georgia too. Maybe we'll get the hurricane. Do you have a special contraption to count the bugs? I can't believe you must do it one by one. trish

I can personally tell you that there are few million more mosquitos living in Northern NH that dined on ME last weekend. So perhaps you should adjust your count to 2,000,800+... Hope all is well.
