Do you have any blackflies or mosquitos in your yard?

We have, but not as many as in previous years.
I'm most thankful for that!



Or are there other insect pests that you must keep an eye on?

In town it would just be mosquitoes, for the most part, and no, I haven't seen any yet.
There are some flat roofs in the area which can collect standing water.
Sort of mosquito hangouts.

Owners should put some nontoxic substance in the water to discourage them.
It can get pretty bad some years.

When isn't he?

Yeah.... That sounds like a perfect breeding ground for the little buggers.
But, so would many other areas around the river, so one more incubator probably doesn't make much difference.
They take advantage of any standing water.
Even birdbaths.

That pic of Eddie, he's in serious trouble...

We have a swamp of sorts on our property, so I guess the neighbours might be ticked off with us. !!
