    I am so sick of these things. They are absolutely EVERYWHERE.

    They don't even eat mostquitoes, as one of their common names, "mosquito hawk" implies. They just fly around, mating, bumping into people and dying in annoying places. Some species don't even eat at all as adults. And there are so many, they easily get inside the house. So as I sit here tonight, in the unseasonably warm Texas weather, not wearing much due to said weather, it feels like an army of feather dusters has formed up and launched an attack. If this keeps up, I'm gonna start injuring them and dropping them into my captive fire ant colony. See how they like that... Seriously, enough is enough.

    :;sharky They don't even eat mostquitoes?? I have been telling my kids not to kill them because they eat the bad guys. And they do fly into me a scare me half to death. Why on this Earth are they called mostquito eaters then? (p.s. I hate them too.) :;nin2
