Mosquitos are shockproof!!


Never knew before today that an electrical shock does nothing to mosquitos. Found out it does not stop them from biting for a second.

There was some concern about the electrical line I had running from the meter to the house being to light, so to avoid any problem in selling, I decided to change it out. Had a backhoe come in and dig a new trench to the meter pole and went get some new, heavier wiring.

Got it hooked to the house breaker box and started laying it out to the pole.
Yea I know this is backwards but thats me. lol

Anyway after dragging around 300 or so feet of this heavy assed wire through the trench, I pulled the breaker and started to remove the ground wire.

Them damn skeeters just were on a feeding frenzy.
Wouldn't let up for a second. About the time I put the allen wrench in the set screw to remove the common, a sketer bit me right on the eyelid.

Did dummy stop and swat the skeeter? Oh no, that would make to damn much sense. I just up and slapped at the skeeter and while doing this, my hand holding the allen wrench hit the live connection where the breaker goes.

Knocked my old ass about three feet away from the pole. Shocked the heck out of me.

Seems like them little, bitty mosquitos would all have fried. Not so. It just seemed to increase their appetite. They didn't let up the biting for one second.

The only conclusion I can come to is that they are indeed shock proof.

Next time I will call the electric company. Let them suckers get eaten up instead of me.

hope you're okay after the shock! i hate skeeters and no-see-'ems, they love to dine on me when they can. wish i had a bat roost on my balcony, that'd take care of the suckers. probably too cold up there where you are for bats. great pest controllers!

Rooster...

Skeets are attracted to heat, you know. I think that little jolt just warmed you up enough for them to see you real good!

Now, you don't have to call the electric company, next time. All you have to do is grab a chuck steak and plug that sucker into the hot line. A few seconds of high-amperage short circuiting and that meat will be hot as hell! The skeets will surely take notice and since the meat will be blood rare (in spots at least), they won't even think to go for you. That's my free advice for you, today... and you didn't have to post on the Ad Lines to get it! *LMAO*

what Sultry said..... goes for me too!

solar has some interesting cooking methods...

fruit flies..... this house is overrun with fruit flies....

we have one of those tennis racquet looking bug zappers... runs on two AA batteries... frying house flies is regular sport here now..

well these fruit flies are driving mom nuts.... we are to the point the kitchen trash can is OUTSIDE..

so i put some slightly over ripe strawberries in a deep narrow bowl and i wait.. lure the stupid pests... when the fruit flies think all is cool they head into bowl.. i then put the zapper over top and blow on the little bastards.. they fly into a frenzy and little blue flashes light up the wires....hahahah

Well I knew I was hot but damn!!!
Damn things are not like the typical bite. These sting and swell up for an hour or so after the bite. Little black skeeters and not gray ones.

Oh heck DBG the worst that could happen is it gives me some brains.

just a little jolt to get the heart thumping.

Got plenty bats in the belfry seem s like. Got a bunch of them I set up some loose boards for .They seem to like going under them. Also put up about ten bird houses for the Martins. Just have that many skeeters this year.

Just go ahead and laugh you evil, wicked woman. lol

I thought it was funny as hell myself. What isn't funny is trying to explain the slight blackeye I somehow managed to get during this time. Don't know if I hit myself with my hand, hit something when I hit the ground or if one of the damn skeeters did it when I wasn't looking.

No you aint getting no picture of it.

Rooster...

I forgot to mention I have heard (from reliable sources, too) the skeets up your way are so damned big they can stand flat-footed and fuck a full-grown turkey!

Looks like they may be larger than what I've been told... *LMAO*

They are large enough to play hob with an old Rooster. I'll keep my pants on just in case though. They may not know the difference.
