That or West Nile, Zika or a host of other great diseases that mosquitoes carry, I guess. You weigh it out. But not like you get a choice here I magine if your house looded and you have wet debris in your yard what a mosquito haven that would be?
Thanks for the update Tink. I just sprayed the entire yard yesterday with Cutter Back Yard Bug Killer "stuff". So far, I'm not inundated with skeeters or sod web-worm moths. I guess that will only last a couple of days.
I haven't noticed the onslaught in my yard as I expected. Maybe it's a bit early. But the greenbelts are BAD. I hate both the skeeters and chemicals but with the standing water and debris everywhere, I guess we have to...
Didn't they use to come around and spray the neighborhoods with a truck on a routine schedule?
The more I read, the more I am not liking dibrom, the chemical used for aerial spraying. I guess we have no choice. I have waged my own war on mosquitoes and yard bugs, to the point where few anoles living in my yard. Sad but true. But at least I know what I putting down! I have Cuttered up my yard with the ingredients that poses low risk, tetramethrin. Just protecting myself today for what's about to come. BTW Dibrom can stay in the air for up to 4 days.
