Mosquitoes and 2-Cycle exhaust ...

I haven’t had any problem with mosquitoes while running my equipment. I don’t know if it’s a real deterrent, but I think those things don’t care for 2-cycle exhaust. What do you guys think?

BS--could be that ...or your BO pitts. lol.

generally speaking, when I am working, I am moving too fast to notice them making me a target.

I do know for a fact that wasps that nest in bushes hate 2-cycle smoke. I used to have a trimmer that ran on 16 to 1 and if I questions about the bush before I started I'd fill it full of smoke before I started trimming.

if there was a wasp nest they'll take off without being mad.

LOL, moving too fast for mosquitoes to catch ya. :rolleyes:

may be cause im to old and wore out ,,but the dam things,, just dont wont my blood. never get bit. wish my grandkids were the same.:)
I did just have a love-sick Cicada trying to mount my Mower.

I couldn't figure it out at first. Was landing on the running mower. Didn't pay much attention to it. Then when I goy my trimmer out, he tried to land on it. Sounds a bit more like a Cicada than the mower did. I suppose the engine vibrations are about the same a Cicada sounds.

The trimmer was a bit too close for my comfort. I finally killed him.
next year we will have a major cicada reunion.

they haven't seen each other in 17 years!

personally, I can't wait to be invited!

the fishing will be it was 17 years ago!:)
