Great bunch of comments! I realized that I have done something like that. Finally even bought an indoor mosquito zapper a few years ago and sometimes use it – but I’ve no idea if it works. I have those donuts for all my water features outside (and the Off fan thingy) but the dang things always find me!
Lately it’s wasps that like to land on my arms while I skim the pool (at least they never bite) may be attracted to all the magnesium oil I’ve been using. I hope it keeps the skeeters away!
