There are mosquitoes in my ductwork!

No wonder I had so many mosquitoes in the house

I keep finding mosquitoes in the house. I hate mosquitoes even more than most people do. That is because I am allergic to them. I break out in huge welts whenever a mosquito bites me. This time of year I tend to cover up whenever I am outside. I also use a lot of bug spray on myself. All of my screens are in good condition and I couldn’t tell how the mosquitoes were getting in. There were too many of them for it just to be from the door opening and closing. Finally, I noticed that the mosquitoes were always near one of the vents to my air conditioning system. I Have been noticing that my air conditioner smells a bit musty lately. I started wondering if it could have standing water in it. Maybe the mosquitoes were breeding in my HVAC system! I closed off every vent in the house and then I called up an air conditioning repairman. A few days later a technician came out and took a look down my ductwork. Sure enough, they were full of water. The technician cleaned my ductwork then fixed my HVAC system. Apparently my air conditioner has been dripping water into the ductwork system for a long time now. No wonder I had so many mosquitoes in the house. That is so nasty! From now on I am going to have the air conditioning repairman come out and take a look at my system at least once a year. I can’t stand the thought of something like this happening ever again.
