Mosquitoes seem to be coming out with the warmer, moist air and even though I haven`t been bit yet...I know it is only a matter of time. Although I am very thankful they do not seem to be as bad here as they can be in cottage country back in Ontario.

If summer ever arrives, campers will start to want to enjoy the great outdoors and mosquitoes definitely put a hamper on things. We love to take a stroll through Fort Langley but not being campers ourselves I didn`t realize that Fort Langley had such an issue with mosquitoes. So much so that they have decided to conduct aerial larvicide treatments. I had never heard of this being done before, again I come back to I learn something new eveyday. :)

You would have to think there should be some concern when using chemicals of any kind. Dragon flies have been known to help reduce the number of mosquitoes as they are one of the 2 main predators to mosquitoes.
