Are they spraying this year?

Date posted - July 1, 2014

I know we’ve had a very wet summer so far, which I consider a blessing now.  And I have seen the spray truck drive down my alley about a month ago. So I know they have sprayed at least once. Today I went out in my backyard, walked to the back fence, and was bombarded by mosquitoes about a thousand times. the same going back to the house.  There are more mosquitos in the growing grass than I have seen in years and years. I really hope they will continue spraying.  Because it was horrible out there today.

    I ride bicycle wearing a mosquito shirt and full face netting, and gloves. In the market gardens, I wear two of the mosquito shirts, and rubber boots as the mosquitoes go for my ankles. They also bite through my blue jeans. To go in the house, I have to go out on the road first to catch a breeze to wave some of them away.

    I wrote this post a few days ago. I did see the sprayers go by my house last night. Whew! I walked from the front yard to the backyard and had mosquitoes all over me, and buzzing in my ears. I don’t think they could spray enough to keep them under control with this moisture. I take care in my yard to get rid of standing water and keep the weeds down, but its getting harder by the day.

    Sorry to say I gripe in the winter and then I gripe in the summer. And I love the green lawns, so I guess I’d better decide to quit complaining about the problems of a wet moist summer.
