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'
