used for that, you would be better off using a light behind a fan, and feed the exhaust to a old nylon sock. spray the sock with alcohol before you empty it. skeeters can't fly against a wind, so they head towards the light, and get trapped. the alcohol kills them by dehydration. This method kills a local population fairly effectively.

I live in a small town, about a hour and a half from ANY major population. I have a .2 acre lot, 2 bedroom house, full basement, 2.5 car garage 20 foot spacing between the homes. I paid $30k for the house.

My mother lives 30 minutes from Milwaukee. 1/4 the lot, 3 bedroom. Full Basement, Compact car garage, and the house sits 15 feet from a BUSY street (so not a prime location) 5 foot spacing between homes. $200k.

Location, Location, LOCATION.

that is true now, but amazon had lots of drm in their stuff back then. the videos transcoded inside WMP and applied DRM back in, and every once in a while, i had to re-sync the license or the player would whine at me. (audio files too) Amazon has since made the (audio) less evil, but the video has become more restricted.

side note, audible (owned by amazon) links into itunes, but to watch a amazon video, you need a separate app. odd.
