Do you know what I have noticed, and the fact of which was reinforced tonight as we were out in the night air watching the fireworks (from three directions no less -- how cool is that). ?
There are very few bugs down here.
We were a bit concerned that the doors to the patio don't have screens on them, but no flying insects are around to fly in when you leave them open, so no worries.
It took some getting used to not having to worry about chiggers or mosquitoes or gnats, but there just aren't many around.
I guess that means that when I get back home in August I will be bedeviled by them all the more because I haven't built up a healthy tolerance for them.
