We haven't gotten to that point yet, thankfully... Worst we have to deal with is the heatwave, buildings constructed to trap the heat in, and midges.

SnowTeddy responds:

i heard the heat wave is bad in UK. we get the normal summer here but thankfully there are days that the weather cool down nicely, especially after the rain.

if your landlord doesn't allow air con then the least frugally you can do is get a humidifier, box fan and/or cooler.

Except for the mountain biking part (the biggest sources of elevation here are garbage dumps), it sounds like what we're starting to go through here in the Hurricane 'n' Thunderstorm capital of America (i.e. Florida).
Heat + Grass + Rain + Humidity = bloodsucking nightmare

SnowTeddy responds:

i heard the storm Colin was bad in FL. don't know what nature will throw at you guys this year. stay safe.

Bugs have been weird this year. I've been seeing all kinds of crazy shit - striped mosquitos, beetles I've never seen before in my backyard, and some kind of weird ass dragonfly-wasp hybrid almost killd me the other day. I did see a bumble-bee today though, so that made me feel good - with all the hype around bees and pollination this past year or so...

SnowTeddy responds:

we are facing mosquito infestation here. and ticks. don't see a lot of bees around which is bad. because every time there are less bees mean there are bad season. and it's true. foods are getting pricey and less quality.

i fear that storm is coming. not just any storm, but climate change. years ago we could bullshit ourselves that global warming wasn't real. but now we feel it, meaning it's already here. Thunder storm and hurricane are getting bigger and stronger every year. World wide droughts are increasing. Winter getting worse. May God have mercy on all of us, for what we had done to this planet.
