Instant Survey: Mosquito Management
It is day five (or six, or seven) of the crummiest weather we've seen all spring in Wisconsin. The rain, though light, is relentless and the puddles are amassing into small lakes that threaten to rival the real lakes that are sloshing over from the deluge. In the short term, this is just a drag and its getting on all of our nerves - but what we're really dreading is the onslaught of mosquitoes. Preventing significant blood loss and (at least in my case) quarter sized welts, will no doubt be a major topic of conversation over the next several weeks. During that time the citronella debate will be raging throughout mosquito territory. What do you think? And do you have any other good DEET-free repellant suggestions?
