So call me a scaredy cat!

I am scared of Mozzies now....
The horrid disease spreading parasites have me scared to go downstairs to even put the washing on.
I know I already HAVE Ross River, but what if they bite me again & it gets worse? Can that even happen?
I wont let the kids go outside and play either, unless they are lathered in mozzie repellant. I think I will have to take out shares in Aeroguard!

I don't blame you. Ross River Fever is not something I ever want to have. I don't think it can get worse, but I'd be slathering up the littlies because I wouldn't want them getting it.

I don't blame you one little bit. I get the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it.

In some parts of South Africa we even have malaria. I hate mozzies!

I know that fear. One doctor guessed my glandular fever was a reaction to a vaccination, and I get a little stressed when my kids get that vaccination.

My parents in law have planted a tree outside our BBQ area that is prized for its mozzie-repelling insecticidal qualities in areas like Papua New Guinea or the Solomons. It's called a Neem Tree (azadirachia). Maybe you could get one!
