Hey Aedes Ladies and other mosquito-gals!


It’s #NationalFlirtingWeek and right in the middle of the week is my favorite day … GALENTINE’S DAY! And if you don’t know what that is, then what’s your damage?

Before I began appearing with the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District, I was working with Parks Director, Leslie Knope, who best defines Galentine’s Day:

“Oh it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style.”

Valentines day

Breakfast? Yes, please! And I’ll have a Bloody Mary on the side as I swipe right with my fellow Aedes Ladies.

Here are my top five favorite activities to do on #galentinesday with all of my (temporarily) single Aedes Ladies:

  1. Buzz out to epic Aedes music (80s, get it?)
  2. Get buzzed with a fancy blood tasting party
  3. Buzz up your profile on Buzzble and swipe for some hot blood
  4. Buzz around the right sources and win the heart(worm) of an adorable puppy
  5. Buzz near a delicious human fragrances and treat ‘yo self!

My dear Aedes Ladies, cheers to finding a mosquito who CAN afford to buy us pearls!
