Hello all of you near the top of the kill chain!
Today's topic once again revolves around human domination over another insect, the mosquito. I don't know if you get Mother Earth News but in the June/July 2012 printing it has a mosquito article and it is just buzzing with information relative to the demise of the mosquito. It references plants to grow, one of which is Bee Balm-which bees like of course, it is a perennial and it repels mosquitoes to boot. It also has a recipe to make mosquito traps, which study data from Africa says traps 90 percent of a local mosquito population. I am incredulous at the bold 90 percentile statement nonetheless I have made a trap and is fermenting as we speak.
You can click here to go read it. And the trap recipe is on page 2 of the article.
I'll report back with what the trap I made turns up in the next few days.
Thanks for stopping by!
