Okay, I hope lots of folks look at the Gardening forum, as I didn't know where else to put this, but I know it applies to more than just gardeners.
Does anyone do anything about mozzies/no see ums, etc, other than headnets and or deet? Over the years some folks swore by "bombing" the backyard, etc. Now there's mosquito magnets/vacs that have mixed reviews. I just find it hard to believe shelling out $500 for some potential snake oil is worth it.
I know this is probably a bad year too with how late the spring was. Maybe I should by a thousand dragonflies and release them into the backyard.
I mean I know they catch mosquitoes, but overall in the end does it make a drastic difference? Maybe I should be 5 of the unit and surround my 1/2 acre on the lower hillside with them.
I'm a lifelong Alaskan, and will be for the foreseeable future, but those buggers sure make working the backyard/bbqing, etc much less enjoyable.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
