those itty bitty island mosquitos don't have JACK compared to the ones in texas!!! Here they are BIG, BAD and leave whelps the size of a quarter...1/2 inch high!! Got attacked after "Keith" last year north of the cut, by a SWARM....nothing compared to here...on AC they just want a snack, here they want steak and potatoes!!!

You're right about the size of the mosquitoes here in Texas... I saw a few that I thought I could put a saddle on and ride around on...

Although the only time I've spent in Texas is at the DFW Airport, I heard that mosquitoes are your state bird and armadillos are suitable for saddle! :-)

I'm on the Texas Coast. I can play connect the dots on my legs as we speak!!!!!! I can't even use my front door. Have to use the back door where the breeze is....... These suckers even bite through your clothes!!! I had to enlist the aide of a pasta fork to scratch my back!!!!! LOL
They're even in the car.... HORROR!!!
