There are mosquitoes in my NYC apartment. I need a solution for getting rid of them.
There is no standing water (we even are wiping down the sink and the dishrack nightly at this point) and there are no tears in any screens. We are currently running a ceiling fan, and two box fans pointed at the bed from different angles in hopes of creating such turbulent airflow that they can't attack us. I sleep wearing bugspray (a non DEET one from OFF!,
since I don't want to sleep in DEET marinated sheets). It doesn't work.
There are, however, frightfully annoying mosquitoes that are biting us in the night. I can only kill them when they are fat with our blood and lazy in the morning. Which is obviously not the time when I want them dead (I'll take it, but I'd rather they be dead before they attack me)
They are somehow suriving 3 fans, bugspray and sheets to bite out legs and arms, primarily focusing on knuckles, knees and anklebones, which of course are bony and therefore more itchy. I am taking vitamin B in efforts that that will make me less tasty.
The bugs are very clearly mosquitoes, since we are killing them regularly, just not before they get us.
I am am a terrible sleeper under the best of times, and getting woken up several times a night by bugbites is making me more neurotic than usual. I need a solution. Please help.
The last question about indoor mosquitoes was from 2009, and I've already got the basic advice down. I'm getting desparate and maybe there is some new technology will help us?
