Question:
How do I get ride of mosquitos?? I live in a low land area, and a Swamp is near by.


Replies:
This is a government job, if it can be done. Talk to your local EPA or mosquito control agency. Where I live, both agencies are involved. They may be unable to help you if large areas are about with breeding potential.

Bats and many bird types like Martins and swallows just love these insects.
