Adios Mosquitos?

Recommended Posts

The last week the mosquitos were borderline unbearable. I'm taking my five year old out this weekend (bug permitting) and want to know if this cold weather eliminated some or all of the mosquitos (I'm writing this Tuesday am). Anyone hunting, especially by Walker have an update on the mosquitos. Thanks, I don't want my son to get bitten up.

It frosted a little by my house in the Grand Rapids area last night. Long range forcast claims to be highs in the 50's for the end of the week. Seems like the skeets' don't come out unless it is in the 60's or higher. But, how often have the weather forcasters been right?

What works for sqits is the spray that Scent Blocker makes- No BUGS. Comes in a blue can-- good stuff and it comes in Earth Scent to!

Don't get the earth scent bug spray as the smell from this stuff is worse than getting attacked by the skeets!
Get the unscented for sure.
The earth scent is too musty smelling for me!

Actually at first I almost fell backwards with the spray coming out of the bottle. But after it was on my clothes, it was fine.
Obviously didn't matter the other night, had 2 deer under my stand and never once looked up at me.

Rest a sure with the temps in the low 30's to 40's at night, those mosquito's will be long gone VERY soon.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.

    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
