Mosquitoes bite me in my office

It is hot everyday, but we do not use air conditioners for saving electricity.  An electric fan was provided in every office. In my office, I widely open the windows and the door. Mosquitoes come in in spite of the anti-mosquito incense, mainly from the door. I might buy another machine to put in front of the door.

anti-mosquito incense after the earthquake

My office is by the garden.  In summer, it becomes insects’ paradise. After the earthquake, the electricity must be saved this summer.  Using air conditions must be avoided especially on the hottest days. I need to open the windows then.  Although there are window nets to prevent insects into the office, mosquitoes inevitably come in. So I bought a device to produce anti-mosquito incense. I opened the windows with nets all day today.  No mosquito bites. Now, the problem will be the heat.  Kofu, surrounded by mountains, could be hottest in Japan. I will wear shorts and a T-shirt.
