Bigger insects might be nice because they can't get through such small spaces, so they'd theoretically be easier to keep out of your living space. But, if they're big enough they can make their own holes, that'd not be so good.



You're probably right.



If anyone's interested, I've posted some pics from my Costa Rica trip onto my blog i just setup:

wickedmizeri In the US - I'd love to move back to Texas (Austin or Dallas) Since I never get to go anywhere outside North America, I know numerous places I'd like to visit, but not sure if they would suit me for residing there.

I'm no scientist, so I've always had difficulty understanding these things. My mum and DH never wear insect repellent of any kind, and I wear a strong sunscreen that coincidentally incorporates insect repellent - and they never have mosquitoes while I am practically swarmed. And I seem to have a strong reaction to the bites, with big hard welts coming up on my skin.



My mum says her blood is very acidic so she doesn't taste good

xNewNoisex I'd probably move to Chicago or New York City. I don't like California, I don't want to contribute to the centralization of radical politics in places like Portland, and I'm pretty afraid I wouldn't want to live anywhere but America.

GhostUser I want to move to Portland, Oregon SO bad! I never lived there specifically, but I lived on the OR coast for 3 1/2 years and spent a lot of time in Portland.



I'm gonna try to get to Austin, TX next year as an interim move. By the disdain most Texans use when they speak of it ("Moscow on the Colorado"), I think it must be my kind of place.

One of their notorious cafes up the road wouldn't go amiss, either.

codemonkey I'd move back to san diego if I made more money. It's my home. I love it there. Other than that, I mostly would want to live in places where it doesn't snow. Unless I made enough money to go somewhere else all winter.

I'd want to live in Switzerland or in Germany.

GhostUser 1. Seattle, Washington

2. San Francisco, CA

3. England

4. Melbourne, Australia



I want to go back to HK to work for a year or two but the air quality is simply too bad for me to want to stay there for the long term. It's even worse than LA.

If I was retired with a good income I'd buy a little little place in the Orkney Islands, just outside of Stromness. Beautiful place. http://www.orkneyjar.com/portfolio/scenes/st/index.html





My grandfather came for the Orkney Islands. It would run a pretty close 3rd choice for me, right after Tasmania (at 2nd). There's really something about cliffs falling down into heavy seas that does it for me, which is part of why I like where I live right now.

Mr_Vegan I would like to check out some quiet place in Canada or Nevada, just to get a little more isolated. The benefit with Canada is that it's not the U.S.! lol.

one of my best friends was born there(okinawa) and lived there until he was about 10 or 11. he said it was like living in a jungle, it was so hot and sticky and weird bugs and tons of trees.
07-24-2008 01:59 PM
Kiz I would live right where I am. Well, no, I'd move about 5 blocks away to a nice big house on the cliff. Though where I am is pretty sweet. It's not so much about being "content with what I have" so much as there is a reason I moved here and that was because this, out of all the places I've been, is where I want to live already.

crazy4mango -Los Angeles, CA. The L.A. scene looks exciting. Plus they have lots of veg*n restaurants, always a plus. No, I haven't been there before, but I'd love to go. It's a good place to get discovered, so I'd probably get myself a couple of gigs at random coffee shops.

-Gold Coast, Queensland. It seems beautiful, and the beaches are so pretty. There would be so many exotic and interesting fish. I haven't gone before, but I've seen photography from there. I think it'd be neat to learn how to surf and get a scuba license.

Skylark Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia

Nebaj, Guatemala



I do plan to live in at least one of the above, but I have to save up money first before I can afford the move.
07-23-2008 01:36 PM
MOMO17 JAPAN!!!, Hirosaki, Sendai, or somewhere in the north. maybe tokyo...maybe.

Iceland, probably Reykjavik(hot springs!!!)

New Zealand, anywhere on the northern island.

the UK, somewhere in the country, near Stonehenge in england maybe.

Netherlands, anywhere.

Kill Uncle It used to be England because of the music scene,but now I would want to live in a hot climate and as close to the ocean as possible.
07-22-2008 08:55 PM
Marie I'd move back to New England.
07-22-2008 08:40 PM
theatrelife101 France. I have always dreamed of living there. Maybe England too, just to acquire the most amazing accent in the world lol.
