Welcome to Mosquitoville

All this rain we've been getting has been very welcome for my lawn, but one rather unpleasant side effect is the booming mosquito population.

While wandering through a field at Hazel Parker Playground for the latest instalment of my Lowcountry dog park series, what I thought was just weeds whipping against my legs turned out to be me being stabbed by several dozen mosquitoes. When I looked down, my legs were practically covered in mosquitoes feasting away. Needless to say, many of those didn't survive to make use of their meal, but my legs are going to be one big itchy mosquito bite soon.

Time to dig out that mosquito repellent.
