Environment 8 - Mozzies

My bedroom is swarmed by mosquitoes. A few weeks of continuous dry weather have bred many of these blood-sucking creatures.
I tried the chemical-aerosol spray. It didn't get rid of them. Perhaps they have developed an immunity to chemicals. Then, I tried electrically activated chemical repellent - that didn't work either.
I am now trying the organic repellent - heated on the dish to create an aroma hated by the pesky creatures. It seems to work the first night. I guess insects can develop an immunity to chemicals quickly, but not to their natural repellents.
However, last night, it didn't work quite that well, as after initially ridding them off, more flew in, in the middle of the night, keeping me awake. Haiz! I am going to report it to the estate manager tomorrow morning. I guess there must be a breeding ground somewhere.
