Anyways, up here in central Alaska, we have a BAD BAD BAD mosquito problem....and often in the summer it prevents us from going outside at all
LOL.......I used to have a family member living in Alaska. Isn't the mosquito considered the State bird due to the unusually large size?
Anyway, while I was growing up in the North Shore Chicago burbs, we had mosquito abatement trucks in the summer time.
We would be playing outside in the yard when they would come passing by blowing the stuff all over the place. We never got a notice to stay inside on
I now live in Louisiana and have never seen an abatement truck the whole time I have lived here. It's very rural where I am so that may have
something to do with it. Last year there were hardly any mosquito's that I can recall, but this year they are really bad, which surprises me because
we have had very little rain. There are also cases of West Nile virus showing up in our area.
