Flick em, don't squash em.

These signs are showing up everywhere in Hollywood around the public parks. I went through this big time back in Chicago the last few summers and people really do get sick and die from this thing so be a bit more cautious and don’t get shit-faced and fall asleep next to that old pond you have out back. Oh wait, we’re in the middle of a drought. Anyway this was just posted on Boing Boing and it might be relative:

If you catch a mosquito feeding on you, you should flick it away rather than squashing it, lest you drive its infectious guts into your body.
