      but the real problem is the formation flying -- they form clouds of humming tornados enveloping you as they carry you off to their roost, and take your canoe with them as a convenient carry case.  If you doubt, you can get a real clue about the size of Mosquitos here in Wisconsin by checking out the size of our purple backyard bug zappers -- they can also serve as log chippers.

      Maybe not as bad as Minnesota or Canadian black flies but who is counting or stopping to take measurements as the flying bloodsuckers are feasting away--in an angry frenzy, draining about a pint per minute? And they just hate it when you resist and try to shut down on them and they call in reinforcements.

      When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!
