Ask Curbed: How To Get Rid Of Downtown Mosquitoes?

New, 35 comments

There was a lot of talk about flies recently, and now comes word of another flying pest. Perhaps this guy should just buy screens? Or a very tiny machine gun. Moreover, no question is too small for an Ask Curbed. A reader writes: "So, here's a question: I live in a loft Downtown, and my windows don't have screens. Almost every night, a mosquito flies into my apartment and bites me, repeatedly, while I sleep. And it's really, really annoying. I've tried very strong bug spray, and apparently, Citronella candles can't be used indoors. I don't want to kill them, I just want to keep them away. What can I do? Thoughts?" [Curbed Inbox]
