    your case sounds extreme.....

    must drive you crazy.... i tot i had it bad, but this takes the cake.

    have you tried locking up your room by day and filling it with baygon/mortein/shelltox etc?

    mossie coil, mossie mats, mossie liquid, mossie patch, mossie UV lamp, citronella candle, nothing WORKS!

    only way is to KILL KILL KILL. its the only species i have no mercy for.. cuz it gave me dengue and causes loss of sleep fo rme..
    Wah your case extreme liao lor. And i tot those commando mossies in the jungles that can bite thru your slacks + underwear are extreme. Mossie coils are effective against them.

    wow..mozzie WAR!

    i stay in landed terrace. kena dengue several yrs back. past wk has been quite bad. if i dun put mozzie coil, surely get bitten when i sleep. and mornings.. my ritual is to 'flush 'em out, i'll hunt all dark corners/clothes/whatever, past 4 mornings i've killed 6 per morning, seem like magic no.!hee.

    in my living room, there's a HUGE UV lamp/zapper, and i must say it is pretty effective, when i sit near it abt 2meters when watching TV, mostlikely i won't get bitten, and one can hear zaps every 15mins or so! and for few days last wk, i get HUNDREDS...yes...litterally HUNDGREDS of mozies on my living room ceiling/corners/walls. v heng they're all male, and damn easy to kill, but all v high up,( mi ceiling is 3meters), in the peak of the night, the UV zaps like one every minute. when one clears the UV thingy...mass grave man!!!!

    what works for me, Aircon, mozzie coil. i used to have those electric baygon thingy...guess not v healthy for humans.

    Male? I'm afraid you got the wrong ones. You should be killing the girls! Its the female mossies that suck blood.
