Mosquitos. I realize I got a shtty boat. But How do I make my boat less desirable as a habitat for mosquitos. Last few trips. To the boat. I have had swarms of mosquitos on the aft deck cockpit transom.
Basically it looks like that are spending the night aboard. But. The the specs of mosquito excrement left behind are a pita to clean

fwiw I am bow north in the slip no bugs on the bow

is the nice dry haven of Bimini and dodger?

Not mosquitoes. Midges. And yeah it’s basically midge poop. Went after it with 2000 grit and did a Wet sand and followed up with a nice wax. And then went sailing.

@capta that vent is the vent in the aft head. no midges inside. no bugs inside the cabin. just outside in the cockpit under the dodger and bimini.

Stowed the bimini last sunday, and just left the dodger up. visited boat on wednesday, and the green dots are back.

Spoke to another boat owner and he said they have been worse this year compared to last year. Did not notice them myself last year.

now I just gotta figure out how to remove the poop with out stripping the wax each time....

Sigh...
