I'm thinking they need to be careful with that. I'm no tree hugger, but I can't help wondering how that cancer upset the ecosystem. What kind of birds will move to better stomping grounds because they no longer have an.abundance of skeeters to eat?

As many if you know, I live on the river. It is only about 150 ft from the.door.of my cabin, to the river. We have skeeters, but they are not a major problem. We fight those little. black. biting. %@#&#*@ flies.

Birds that don't have skeeters to eat will eat those little. black. biting. %@#&#*@ flies.

I've noticed that where there's tons of crane flies, there are hardly any mosquitoes. I think the crane fly larvae just outcompete the mosquito larvae in the same environment. The birds and bats don't care, they eat either one. And you don't need to catch near as many crane flies to make a meal!!

Seriously, the disease vector aspect of mosquitoes outweighs any value they might have (be glad we don't have malaria here!), and there are plenty of other little squeakies that can replace 'em... and who knows what mosquitoes drove out? Those honeybees everyone's in an uproar about aren't native, ya know; they're an invasive species brought from Europe. What pollinated stuff before English honeybees? the native bees, most of which aren't colony builders (and have been largely displaced by honeybees). True of a lot of species, either by someone's intervention or natural migration.

A little older'n me, then I did have one I used as a mailbox mount. Upsidedown. Looked ridiculous, but people could always find the place!

Yeah, if you feel any hard lumps about the size of a hen's egg, or "stuffed socks", that's heads and bodies. No lumps and kinda laying more relaxed and on her side than before, she's done.
