    I got 4 wrong the first time, but I got them all right when I took it a second time. I am going to try a third time to see if I can get them all right twice in a row.
     

  3. Missed the dark clothing question, I have to disagree with it. I can were bright clothes and find just as many skeeters.

    Wolfwoman $90 for your fur made into trapper hat or mitts!

    Mr. T! LOL

    80%

    I disagree with the clothing thing too, mosquitoes LOVE me, no matter WHAT I'm wearing. Hubby rarely gets bit.
     
  5. I only missed one. Lucky for me I don't get bit much unlike my wife who is a smorgus board for them.

    Becky P One must believe the glass is half full.

    I missed four. The clothing one, I also disagree with.
    BTW, what the hell does a male mosquito eat?

    I don't know Becky P what they eat but the way you put it was funny. Maybe there here as a decoy. If you kill a couple and they don't have blood in them they were the male decoy's. LOL ;D

    Found it!!!!

    Only the female mosquitoes feed on blood, male mosquitoes feed on plant nectar and juices.
     
  11. I missed 3 out of the 15 for 80%, actually did better than I thought I would have.

    I missed one... 93%. It was the one where WNV was first reported (NY). I had no idea. There have been a few reported cases where I live, and because my young child is real sick right now (can't seem to get the fever below 102), that's the first thing that crossed my mind... WNV! The skeeters have been thick here for the past few weeks...
     
  14. Oh well, 73%, I am still just average, I thought we were suppose to get smarter with age?

    I cant believe you guy's didn't know that only the female mosquito bites you and that the males live on pollen . The reason females need blood is to produce the babies . One more thing , if you eat a lot of Banana's , then you will get bit more . It has something to do with the potassium . Rick

    I knew of a fella that would not eat sugar during the summer and claimed that the skeeters never bothered him. He is gone now but I remember him saying that.
