Due to local flooding, we have a HUGE mosquito problem, please help...
I live about an hour away from the area flooded out by the Missouri River. Due to this flooding, mosquitos are the worst I have ever seen them in my life. I have finally found something that works on me... Ultrathon, but I have to use almost half a can. But I can't find anything to help Cinny.
Just so you know, our BO has made sure there is NO standing water on the place, and has treated the water supplies in the turnouts. He is doing everything he can on the premises. I think the problem is our stable is butt up against a HUGE wilderness park complete with creek, water holes, etc. It's a state park and the state has contracted for the city to run it. City says the state needs to take care of treating for mosquitos, state says it's the cities responsibility so NOBODY is doing it. We can't even go out on trail because as soon as I pass a certain point Cinny becomes engulfed in a cloud of mosqitos so thick you almost can't see through them!
At night around dusk the mosquito clouds end up in the barns and make Cinny just miserable despite the auto insecticide sprayer. I have tried pretty much every fly spray that says it repels mosquitos too with no real help. What can I do to help him? I'm tempted to spray the ultrathon on him but I don't know if it will make him sick because it's designed for people and is pretty strong (gives me a headache when I use it). Does anybody have any suggestions?
