One of the not quite so charming things about living in a decent climate is that of course in summer you get plagued by mosquitos. Fortunately, there are things to deal with this like the Mosquito Magnet. Quite simply, you put one of the attractants, like lurex in, the mozzies go to that and get killed by the machine. You get to sit in the garden and not get eaten as a result.
However, you do have to make sure that you keep the machine well maintained, that you place the trap in the right place (see usage tips for more) and that you keep it topped up with one of the attractants. There are two of these attractants, one mimics human breath, the other releases from human skin. I find the second, the lurex mentioned above works better for me but your experience can differ!
