I made the mistake of walking my dog along the Naugatuck River in Torrington on Saturday morning between those sheets of rain we were getting. It was humid, and I stupidly left my hoodie on the couch. Within seconds of leaving my house, I was attacked. I don't think that I've ever been bitten by a mosquito on my earlobe or eyelid before Saturday, it's truly left me stunned. I must have 6 deep bumps on my arms, 8-10 mountains on my calf and ankles, and huge hooters on my forehead, eyelid, and earlobe.

How much longer do we have to wait here in Connecticut? Not much, according to most of the pest control sites I cruised. Mosquitos thrive when the humidity is up, and the temperature is between 50-80 degrees. Daytime temps in the 50's are coming soon, hang tough Connecticut, and don't forget your hoodie at dawn and dusk.
