Comments from Jim Dill of the UMaine Cooperative Extension faculty are included in a Tuesday Bangor Daily News report on the impact of this summer’s weather .................... Dill says that the number of pests — especially mosquitoes — has been reduced this summer because of the dry and warm weather conditions.

I haven't noticed any change. It was very hot and bone dry for a while and parts of my lawn died out along with a small tree. It's been raining a lot since then and mosquitoes are plentiful now. I have heard a friendly owl at times. That owl I believe has cut down on the bird noise pollution. I have fake owls in my yard but the regular birds seem to ignore them.
