Mosquitoes have been a huge problem at my trails since day one. Last year was particularly bad and we tried anything we could think of to deal with them. This year we are trying to be proactive and nip them in the bud before they have a chance to hatch. As a matter of fact I just got back from going on “mosquito patrol” as I call it. Of course a storm rolled in right after I finished so now I’ll have to go back tomorrow and make sure there isn’t any standing water. It’s a weird coincidence that when I got home and hopped on the computer I noticed that Janis had posted a mosquito article over on Trailrambling. Definitely check it out cause there are some good tips in there for dealing with those little fuckers.
