Yes, I'm writing about those insects that suck your blood.

Those irritating 6-legged insects that love to buzz around your ears when you are trying to catch some sleep on a hot night.

Yes, those very same ones that are capable of killing you, especially of the aedes variety, and can spread dengue.  

They have a tendency to make their appearance when we try to catch some shut eye. But they are around everywhere, everyday, feeding on you and your loved ones. They tend to love to attack those with a higher body temeprature , namely younger children, and possibly menopausal women (due to the hot flushes experienced, perhaps)!

Well, we have been plagued by them recently, most probably due to the extremely hot and dry weather!

But last night, we were spared. Why? We didn't know initially. 

But when we woke up this morning, we had found that quite a number of them had committed suicide in our toilet bowl.

What had attracted them to the toilet bowl? 

Was it the smell? Was it something we ate? But we didn't eat anything out of the ordinary.

Perhaps, it was the smell of the the urine, after consuming durians!! Mosquitoes love the aroma of durians too?

We are going to try it again! (But not tonight! Coz there probably aren't any left!) haha! 

But meanwhile, please help out by making sure you are not breeding mosquitoes!
