    I spent 5 minutes outside last afternoon with Rocco and had to come inside because I was being eaten alive! I actually had something bite the palm of my hand!!! We have these little black gnats that bite. And mosquitoes are getting bad now too (I like how you call them mossies heehee) I've heard a few things about mossies. They apparently are attracted to estrogen. That's why you normally hear of women getting more than men. Also if you eat bananas, as your body processes them, you give off a "scent" that they're attracted to. Also carbon dioxide, so as we breathe, it attracts them. What I can't figure out is if they're attracted to my breath, why do they bite my legs so much?!??
