:lol: I hate those damn things....I usually just get some fly spray, spray it into the air all around the room for about 5-10 seconds then go out and shut the door. Come back in like 10-15 minutes and hopefully they will all be dead.

There's that mosquito repellant candle - 'citronella' or something.

Oh shite, I hadn't been bitten by mosquitoes in years, but now that I've moved I suddenly discovered two itchy bumps on the top my feet. I now think they might be mosquito bites.

In JA, we used to burn Mosquito Destroyers (?) I wonder if they've got them here. Never used the citronella before, I must admit.

i hate these damn things! the most i ever got was about 18 bites. i remember i went to mexico in the summer, and i was embarrassed to put on some shorts cos they were all over my legs.

you know what i did though to make them stop biting me? i put some baby oil on before i went to bed. i didn't get one bite. :) (i still do that during the summer)

Hmmm, maybe you should drop trou. The fumes would surely do the trick.

In Australia you can buy a repellant that plugs into your power outlet/socket. You switch them on about an hour before bedtime.
They release a small dose of repellant during the night and they really do work....especially in small rooms. I am unsure if they are sold elsewhere, but they might be worth a try. They certainly work.

If I see them, I like to take a lighter and an aerosol and give them a quick toasting... it usually burns their wings off but leaves them alive, so you can find them and torture them however you choose. In fact it works with all winged insects. Just make sure you don't burn down the house!

First you need to make sure there's no standing water, they reproduce in it.

Mosquitos suck, we have a lot here because there are swamps to the east. We also have these gigantic like ones, that are like the length of my little toe. They're so disgusting.

Citronella does work.

I wouldn't suggest spraying chemicals in your room.

Kill each of them with your hands . It's the most simple way ;)

I suppose you don´t breed them in your room. This insekts need water to develop from eggs to larvae to a "full insekt".
You have to keep them out of your room, find out where they comes from, window? (Do you use windows on your PC, shut down the computer when not in use :lol: ) doors, air conditioning? keep them out with a mosquito net.
For their stings, use some anti itching preparat.
My best advice: Ignore them, if you can´t ignore them it feels like Morrissey lyric in the song The moore you ignore me the closer I get sung by the mosquito chorus.
