Bugs, Bugs, Bugs

The summertime in Washington is unfriendly for many temperature-related reasons, but the reason I find least comfortable is Mosquitos. For some reason, I am just incredibly tasty to the bugs, as is my fiancĂ©e, and it’s a real tough place to be. I get bitten when I go outside even just to water the garden, which is even more aggravating. Then BoingBoing steps in and show me this wondrous monstrosity. Give it legs and a good battery, and you would have the ideal robot. All for just $200!

Say, we’re getting married next month…perhaps we ought to register for it?

Also, my tomatoes have another bug problem: aphids. Can anyone tell me where I can get ladybugs in this town? I’ve asked a few places, but no one seems to have any…help?

    Go for it.

    The Wife and I are seriously considering buying that thing although it’d eat into the budget for the other overpriced household gadget we’ve been coveting, a Dyson vacuum.

    I was already intrigued with the much cheaper DIY mosquito solution that was linked in an update to that article. All of these mild winters mean bugs galore. Chiggers and fleas are the other big problems ’round these parts. Yep.

    My co-worker teased her husband relentlessly for buying this device. Mostly because he couldn’t figure out how to get it working just right (he’s since figured it out). They recently had a big Memorial Day party and she said it worked like a charm.
