The mosquitoes here this year are bad, really bad. I have been to Alaska a few times and Canada's Arctic during the summer, those were the worst and largest mosquitoes I have ever experienced but this is running a close second for me.
We have a pond and a slow creek on our property that is prime mosquito-raising terrain which is hard for us to control. The creek is constantly moving and the pond is full of fish. Also, our bees get water from the pond so I cannot add anything to that except maybe those little barley things that float.
There's nesting boxes for the swallows and a bat house too in our backyard. I would hate to think what it would be like if we didn't have those.
I was trying to plant yesterday evening and was eaten alive by mosquitoes. Later we had some elk show up at our pond and you could tell that they were being pestered by the bloodsuckers, too. They jumped, bucked and eventually just gave up and took off running. I felt their pain.
