Leave Mosquito Bites In The Past

I spent my childhood summers and long weekends in the interior of British Columbia in a cabin by a fishing lake… basically “Mosquito Country”.

I’ll always remember the stickiness and the horrible smell of the mosquito spray that my mom layered on us. If only we’d had ThermaCELL back then!

    EVERYWHERE! We live in South Louisiana and in the Spring and Summer,especially after it rains,the biting critters come out in full force! We basically have to drench ourselves in bug repellent just to go outside! UGHHHH!

  2. Dawn says

    As soon as I step out my front door, I swear that the mosquitoes are waiting for me. I can’t be out in our yard for more than five minutes without my legs having multiple bites!!

  3. Mami2jcn says

    We have a pond across the street and I hate that the mosquitoes seem to attack during the evening.

  4. Rebecca Parsons says

    IN the evening the really come out. We have a pond and they sometime feel like they are going to carry you away they are so thick.

  5. Janet W. says

    They bother me the most in my own backyard! Especially in the evenings. They are attracted to my legs for some reason!

  6. Gina M says

    They bother me the most when I am sitting on my deck. I can’t sit out there for a single minute without getting bitten.

  7. Aly says

    They bother me when we’re outside – whether on the patio or having a picnic at the park. It’s been so incredibly rainy this month and the mosquitoes are AWFUL.

  8. Michael T says

    We sit outside in our back patio area around 6 to 7pm and thats when they seem to attack in squadrons.

  9. Erin Ellis says

    They bother me the most on our back patio. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

  10. says

    Our very own backyard is horrible! I feel like I am going to get carried away from all the mosquitoes! We do have a lot of bats, but they don’t eat all the mosquitoes. They devour me!

  11. Peggy Johnson says

    The mosquitoes have been particularly bad this year on our deck and in the backyard, especially in the early evening

  12. Susan Christy says

    They bother me when I’m sitting on my patio in the evenings. They are worse than ever this year.

  13. Claudia says

    The mosquitoes bather most at the evening when we sit on the porch and go for a evening walk, thank you!

  14. Amanda E. says

    Day and night. I live along the Gulf Coast where there are species that bite during the day and not just the evening.

  15. Audra O'Hara says

    They drive me nuts while I’m gardening in my flower beds; especially when it’s been rainy.

  16. Jason says

    Everywhere!!! We have gotten a ton of rain this year in MN and the annoying jerks are everywhere! You can’t even go outside! When will Science figure out a way to wipe them off the planet?

  17. says

    The question for me should be ‘When and where do mosquitoes NOT bother you the most?’! Seriously, they love me. If I even step out of the house to get meat off the grill, I get a bite. No one else will get one bite and I will get 12 just sitting outside for an hour on the patio. So this year I vowed to try even harder to make them go away. I use essential oils, mosquito spray, and take odorless garlic pills twice a day. So far this summer, I have only had 3 bites!

  18. Terra Heck says

    Mosquitos bother me the most when I am camping and hanging out outside. The evening time is the worst. Thanks.

  19. darci says

    They are crazy bad in the spring..and continue into the summer I am in the northern part of bc…lots of standing water….

  20. Jennifer Essad says

    they bother me most around 5 pm when I’m out in the yard w/our pup I have to cover up to play w/her

  21. says

    Oh the mosquitoes here are huge and attack without provocation all they need is a little shade and they are out by the hundreds for the buffet on my family. A 15 x 15 foot safe zone would be the entire back deck which would be perfect.

  22. amber rizer says

    They really bother us I’m the evening/night time. It’s been so bad here lately we can’t even enjoy sitting on our porch!

  23. says

    All I have to do is walk outside to get attacked no matter what time of day it is. I know this is unrealistic, but, I think if mosquitoes had telepathy, a loud call into the wild (or cell phones (ha-ha)), they communicate to each other that the target has appeared and its time to attack.

  24. says

    I had horrible experiences while fishing with my dad, at the beach and the parks, I’d always end up covered with mosquito bites. They are the worst since I scratch them uncontrollably at night and end up with bloody, scabby legs and arms in the morning.

  25. Kim Kihega says

    Mosquitos tend to bug me most in the evening. We play on the trampoline which is by the woods and there is just so many of them!!

  26. Cindy Brooks says

    Mosquitos are my enemy! I am a mosquito magnet and they will fins and bite me if they are anywhere within 100 yards!

  27. Denice P says

    Mosquitoes usually bother me the most at night time when I am sitting in my backyard relaxing.

  28. Stacey Roberson says

    The mosquitoes are terrible in our backyard around sunset. My ankles are the first place they go for. And they don’t seem to bother my husband or son, just me.

  29. Natalie F says

    They are awful in Wisconsin. If you are in the woods or as soon as the sun goes down, they get you bad. I can’t stand them. I can’t even run through our beautiful woods right now because they will eat me all gone!

  30. Laura J says

    Our Mosquitos have been horrible this year in our backyard! Poor little Carter has had so many bites when we try to go outside and play. Its worse at night…but they are always out there! Just horrible this year.

  31. says

    Every year when we go camping the Mosquitos are the worse. I’m glad I found this solution I hate spraying myself and kids with chemicals this seems like a better alternative.

  32. Linda Szymoniak says

    We get the most mosquitoes in our back yard. Our yard backs up against what used to be an empty lot. There was a duplex built on part of it, but they don’t always keep the grass and brush cut down bordering on our lot. Too many places for mosquitoes to breed and hide there.

  33. Tammy S says

    They usually bug us in the evenings in our backyard. We have a stream that runs through our backyard so there is always some mosquito’s near by.

  34. Ellie W says

    They bother me the most when I’m sitting in the stands at both of my grandson’s little league games.

  35. gayle gildehaus says

    The worst place for them are in my back yard.That happens to be where my garden and my clothesline are.They eat me up!

  36. says

    Mosquitoes and biting black flies bother me right here at my own home, it is hard to even enjoy the outside deck in the late afternoon, I guess that is what I get for living in the woods.

  37. Deidre LeDoux says

    Right around my house are a lot of trees. Mosquitos are real bad. I cant step foot outside without repellant. I come inside with a million bites.

  39. Betsy Barnes says

    Here in the mountains of North Carolina, mosquitoes start showing up around June and they are everywhere! The worst time of the day is around sunset and dusk. We use tiki torches when we sit on the deck and wear long sleeves, thankfully, it does get much cooler at night. :)

  40. Karen Glatt says

    The mosquitoes really bother me on the back porch-deck area! I need a Thermacell Patio Lantern to kill these bugs!!
