Death to Mosquitoes

I, for one, am thankful that mosquito season is over-- we had our first frost of the season yesterday (rather early for Korea, actually). It went out with a bang, though--the last mosquitoes of the season seemed to be much more aggressive and larger than those during the summer. I caught a few which I would say were larger than the average Canadian mosquito.
More than the mosquitoes, I'm glad to be rid of the foggers. In our area, they aren't too bad, and living on the tenth floor it's easy to get the windows shut before the fog wafts up to our apartment. When we were on the first floor next to the road it was a lot harder. It seems that they fog every day in the town where my in-laws live. When I hear the truck coming, I jump to close the windows, but am met with protests. "It's too hot." "Just grit and bear it--it won't last long." "It can't be ad for kids, otherwise they wouldn't be allowed to spray in town." Even the meat hanging in the shop out front is left there, with the door wide open.
My wife says when she was a kid, they used to chase th truck up and down the streets, dancing in the fog. Apparently things haven't changed much:
