device for flying insects

Some of you may know that I've been suffering from insect bites badly. United States President Barack Obama has an elegant way on killing flies, I don't. I have been using sprays. However, we all know that fly sprays are not good for human, so I got myself a more environmentally friendly method - an insect zapper.

Does it work? Yes, but not that efficient in my opinion. It works on lighthouse principle, which means you have to put it high and in the dark area for it to work.

Unlike the nice and cool weather in beautiful Boston, picturesque Quincy or reputable Rochester, hot weather in Sydney simply means insects are active!

(to Don: Before you call me rich, this device costs less than $40 AUD from supermarket.)

I don't know how many times I've told you now about how we have mosquitoes, horseflies, etc. in Boston.

Common sense told me that mosquitoes, horseflies, etc are NOT active during (beautiful) snowy seasons.

Just because we have winter at the opposite time of the year as you doesn't mean you can make it seem like it's always winter here, you know.

I believe considered our winter as "spring" or "summer" in your North American standard.
We don't have beautiful snow.
