Missing the mosquitoes? Didn't think so...

Have you wondered why the mosquitoes have not been as much of a problem as usual this year? The answer is fairly simple. We are about 11 inches below normal in rainfall for this year. They just don’t have an abundance of puddles in which to reproduce. So much for the old wives' tale of a mild winter will equal lots of bugs!
