Complaining about mosquitoes in Michigan is as predictable as grumbling about snow in winter and construction zones in the summer. Seriously. These things happen. But after a week of early evening gardening, I've come to the conclusion that spraying myself with Off or Deet or Super Duper 'Squito Remover is as effective as dousing myself with Old Spice and walking into a cheap bar on Friday night with twenty-dollar bills falling out of my pockets. Far from being any sort of deterrent, now I'm just A LOT easier to find.
