There you are lying in bed, your eyelids are getting heavy, you can feel your mind switching off as you start to drift off. And then it begins.
A high pitch buzzing.
You wonder what it is as first, your television, the hum of the refrigerator in the kitchen. And then it gets closer and you realise it is a mozzie.
You lay in wait, lit only by the screen of your cell phone, waiting for it to land. You swat it and inevitably miss and slap yourself instead.
Only to find yourself wide awake, extremely annoyed and wondering if you will ever be able to get to sleep. AND if you have had any insect repellent or fly screen handy.
You have two choices, you can either grin and bear it and pop some antihistamines and hydrocortisone cream tomorrow so you do not scratch the bites
Or You can douse the suckers with fly spray and marinate yourself in repellent.
The trouble with insect repellent is it's expensive, it smells gross, and there are studies that suggest the DEET might lead to dementia.
And then there is fly spray. After you spray this aerosol spray to kill the bugs, you have to keep breathing it in until it dissipates, it can lead to asthma. Not to mention the smell it leaves in the room.
How many hours of sleep have mosquito robbed you of in a lifetime? And it isn't just mozzies, flies and moths can be just as annoying when you are trying to drift off to sleep.
Then once you have dealt with the bugs, you are left, laying there, wide awake at 2 am wondering if you will ever drift off to sleep.
