No mosquitoes?

Don't miss the little blighters but am curious as to why I don't see any this year. I usually get several mosquito bites during the year even while taking vitamin B1 which helps to reduce the number at least. Don't like the spray on or wipe on repellents. They are supposedly safe, but...

This year I'm not even taking extra Vitamin B1. I just don't see any mosquitoes. I still walk around a lot, at the beech , in the woods, around town, the occasional trip to Portland or Salem. Still no mosquitoes. We had a wetter than average spring and the summer has also been cooler than normal even inland. Maybe they like it hotter?

Just another benefit of living on the Oregon coast. Away from the sweltering heat and bugs that infest the rest of the world.
