I wish it would get cold and freeze hard enough to kill them all! It was 103* so I doubt that's going to happen any time soon!

Darn skeeters......
I remember in Italy when they got so bad, the county sprayed. And they were awfully quick about it. But that might be because Italy is all tourism and can't afford to have people get sick and run away.
Main problem here is a) the wetlands close by and b) the irrigation. The existing mosquito population lays eggs in the wet ditches, then they dry out, but as soon as the next water comes through they emerge with a vengeance. I do see a pattern here....

You only have to look at how out of control the tick problem is along the east coast to know nothing will get done here. Lymes disease is a huge threat to animals and humans but it seems that we just have to 'live with it'

Being a US native I have a hard time with it. People in Dallas were up in arms when they decided to "crop dust" for the nasty things. I guess they thought they were Agent Orange'ing them???

I don't understand....weigh the risks....*sigh*

I bought some Mosquito Halt today, in the truck on the way home I kept on smelling something....thought it was my new deoderent.(long day).
I get home, still kept smelling it....horses come up for their evening feed, break out the Mosquito Halt...HOLY CRAP! That stuff smells like Old Spice!!! I thought it was my deoderent, nope.

I knew Old Spice was a repellent.
