Dang skeeters.

Since our floods last month the skeeters have overtook my property, which means war.

Since shooting them is very time consuming and hard on the shoulder what are the best ideas to send the bastards to hell?

$$$ is no object this is war.

In our tiny suburb part of town, they drive by with fogger trucks a couple times each summer. Maybe your area has that, and your city'll have the trucks drive by your area? Call 'em up and see? Best of luck.

You gotta first make sure they don't reproduce. Get the stuff at the farm supply to put in standing water.

Start eating alot of garlic. Nice side effect is friends and neighbors will quit bugging you too.
I like the sastifying sound the electric zappers make. I saw a portable propane powered model in one of those airline shopper mags.


or you could just leave your diesel idling in the back yard all the time

Showoff.

Still they don't breed in moving water anyway.

Is the lake stocked?

First, make sure that you don't have any standing water on your property. Look for things you didn't think mattered. Empty every one that you find.

As for the exiting vermon, you can try one of those propane powered mosquito catchers.

The oil trick would work but, please don't do that.

Tabacco will work in standing water just as well. I cig here and there will do the trick. Get the filterless ones or just a bag of loose leaf.

If the lake is full of fish that's not where the skeeter are coming from then.

What you really need is birds and some bats. throw up boxes around that lake and your problem will be no more, ever, and some beneficials will have their tummys full. it's all good.


p.s. thank for that terra server reminder. I use topozone.com all the time but haven't been to terra in 5 years and have been thinking there was some other site i used before for topos. looks good too.

I read somewhere about a ritual where you burn a big enough blood sucker to death and it scares off all the little ones...........but i'm sure it's fiction
