1 More Human Then A Human on Thu Jul 23, 2009 10:14 am

So I was wondering if I could get your opinions on something. This summer I noticed that I haven't gotten a single mosquito bite yet. I find this odd as every one else I know has. So two days ago I watched four mosquitoes do their thing on my arm and to my amazement there has been no reaction what so ever. So I am now wonder if I should happy about this or worried... lol I used to get "bite" marks before. So I guess I am wondering if any of you have heard of people not reacting to skeeter bites? Thanks.

Only mosquitoes exposed to green kryptonite have any effect on me...just kidding.

Haven't had a single bite this year, but I know what you're referring to. Sometimes I get a welt and other times not. There have been times when I didn't even feel the little bastard having a full course meal on me. Not sure if its your skin or if its the mosquito. I always carry After Bite as it takes the sting and the itch away.

I wonder if I should just consider myself lucky. I am perfectly healthy, I even quit smoking since last summer. I wonder if that could have some thing to do with it. lol

The mosquitoes that itch and leave marks have STDs. I heard most mosquitoes are sluts and will stick it into anything. Shocked

Skeeters bite me but I very rarely have an itching reaction to the bites. But this year so far I am not even sure I have been bitten once.

Skeeter fun. Wait for one to land and start sucking. Pull the skin around it so tight it cant release its sucker...

wait and see what happens.

I don't think I've had a single bite in or around my yard this year. But I got eaten alive in the Whiteshell a few weeks ago.

Just at dusk, the rest of the time it hasn't been bad. Maybe because of all the dragonflys?

Uh, yeah. He posts here 500 times a day. Maybe this is why his posts have been down of late: he's out torturing poor defenseless mosquitoes.
