Only survivor is also gone :-p

I was suffering from Mosquitoes buzzing for the past two days until last night... I was sleeping soundly after i got this mighty insect spray from my colleague. hehehe :-p The only survivor has also gone after i used the spray... :-)

I slowly recovered from not enough sleep from the previous two nights... Guess what? for the past two days, I was a walking zombie during the day and became tiny vampires' meal during the night... sigh! Thanks to the Farco Rapid Kill... I got back my sleep. :-p


On my last entry, couple of you would like to know why mosquitoes tends to buzz in human's ear... I google and found this interesting statement and hope this answer your question...

A ranger at a local park told me that since mosquitoes are attracted by the smell of carbon dioxide, given off by us when we exhale, perhaps the mosquitoes benefit from our jumping about when they try to buzz us, causing more breathing and more carbon goodness. Another expert said it was a little warning sign, a gift from nature, like a snake’s rattle. Another said the tone attracts the male. Then why in MY ear? Does anybody really know? (extracted from Why do mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ear?)
