Know what else sucks about this time if year? Misquitto bites and poison ivy.
I have both
Don't know about the poison ivy side - I never had it.
Mosquitos? You don't know from mosquitos! I can't even use my hot tub at night right now (gazebo collapsed over the winter because I didn't get a chance to take it down before the snowfall fubar'd it) because it means a loss of a pint or two of blood per hour.
