Would you rather have 2 wily mosquitoes or 20 freakishly large Korean kamikaze fruit flies fluttering around in your one-room?

Fruit flies. I'd take 100 over Wile E. mosquitoes.

I'd take fruit flies any day.  I can't sleep at night if I know there's a mosquito in the room.

Agreed. I'll take the fruit flies. The sound of mosquitoes when they fly past your ear while you're trying to sleep?

Ugh. Nope.

Screw that. I can kill 2 mosquitos in a matter of minutes.

20 fruit flies? (or 100????) That's going to take forever.

Yep. I'd rather deal with 2 buzzers and slay them swiftly

PLUS, ,mosquitoes will come to you, they are bigger, and they don't fly around randomly.

I always thought mosquitoes were the bigger nuisance, but the fruit flies have really gone deranged this season. Of course the mosquitoes have yet to come out in full force this year...

Fruit flies are the devil, Mosquitoes their Malaria carrying b**chy aunt

Get all your food waste in the freezer and I really suggest investing in one of these bad boys

Ahh thank you! I was just about to ask if anyone knew a way to get rid of the mosquitoes. Also, has anyone gotten the Japanese encephalitis vaccination? My mom keeps mentioning I should get it but my co said the encephalitis is super rare.

Before I came here (2.5 years ago) the travel health clinic in Winnipeg told me not to bother.

That's the thing. I do! It's the food that can't be refrigerated that's the problem. Damn bananas.

I got it, but for a trip to India. Not to come here.

It is very rare. If you are going to be in the countryside, real rural and near pig farming or rice farming, especially in Jeju you could maybe consider it. The few people who do get it in Korea would be farm workers.

The risk of contracting the JE virus and it developing into encephalitis is lower than the risk of complications from the vaccine.

I've been wondering about rice fields and mosquitoes. I walk through the country side to and from my main school (3 days per week), and it's right through rice farming villages.

Will the mozzies be wild during the summer? Even during daylight hours?

Yeah both are annoying, but as long as I'm careful about my trash then fruit flies aren't usually too big of a problem. Mosquitoes on the other hand are sneaky fuckers and are literally worse than Hitler. Tiny flying Nazis.

Anyway, last week after a mosquito-induced sleepless night I went out and got one of these gadgets, thinking it might be healthier for me than the spray. Well...

Unless you like headaches and vomiting, don't forget to turn it off before going to sleep. Trust me. DON'T FORGET.

Got rid of the mosquitoes, at least  :blank:

My school had exams this week, so I was let out of school once I was finished with my proctoring. I went to this big old market and found one of those fancypants Japanese melons that are always so expensive here for 5000! So I picked it up and for lunch today I had my first ever melon in Korea (not counting the Korean cucumber melons or watermelon).

The printer wont print any text if the file is from Microsoft Word. It will print pictures though...
So this means that anything I want to print I need to move it to HanCom (ewwww) and reformat the whole thing.

So annoying......

If you don't have to make any changes can you save the Word file as a PDF and print that?

Fruit flies are my mortal enemies right now.
