Me too. Cannot cut grass or trim shrubs w/o being attacked as soon as you pause a moment, especially in shade.

We get them here so bad that it's a blood-bath stepping outside. But, thankfully, around the end of June it dries out and they go away. Only a couple of weeks of misery, so it's tolerable.

Funny thing is, one day you could walk around outside bare-assed nekkid all day long and not have a problem. The next day they hatch and you walk outside and you're down three units of blood.

It's crazy, but thankfully, very temporary. I hate them little fuckers. This year they were so bad I had to put on my bee suit just so I could mow the lawn. Yeah, they were that bad. They just laughed at the DEET while saying, "that's all you got?".

I felt the way until I got my Thermacell. I know you're not supposed to use it indoors, but when I hear one of the little beasties I just light it for 10 minutes. An hour later everything that flies is dead, and I'm back to sleep.

The worst is that one mosquito in your bedroom in the dead of night in pitch blackness when you're trying to fall asleep. Just complete silence, and then next to your ear... "eeeeeeeeEEEEEEEeeeeeeEEEEEEEEE..." Mad

They are bad this year.
For the seven years we lived at the house in Richmond (until we moved in 09/2017), you could not go out back to grill, play with the dogs or cut the grass without being swarmed by them. It was so bad we even had companies come out and spray.

It was the worse I have ever seen.

..and apply it with this:

I bought this a couple of weeks ago to spray round my yard and flowers. It seems to work just fine. Takes about a half-hour every three weeks during the summer. The chemical gets rid of wasps, hornets, mosquitoes, spiders, and door-to-door salesman.

The little bastards are small and stealth.
I don't even seem them, all I know is my skin starts itching with a little bump that grows to a big welt.
At least they used to be big and gave you a fighting chance to swat them off.

Anyone use a misting system or similar?

We haven't had much of an issue with skeeters this year, but man oh man the yellow jackets have been horrible. I've killed out a couple of hives (nests?) and it hasn't made a dent in the overall number of the bastards. Mad

At least yellowjackets only attack you when disturbed. Mosquitoes purposely target you right from the start. If not for being food for bats, they have no reason to exist.
