Man­ual mos­quito con­trol

EQUUS - - Eq Letters -

Here in the South, we al­ways have mos­quito lar­vae in our troughs, but I’m ner­vous about putting chem­i­cals in the wa­ter, and we’re in a drought so dump­ing the wa­ter daily feels waste­ful (“No Crea­ture Com­forts,” EQUUS 457). To man­age the prob­lem, I bought a pool skim­mer and just swish it through the wa­ter in the troughs daily. I am amazed at the num­ber of lit­tle mos­quito lar­vae I can pull out and flick to the ground in just sec­onds. Katy Roberts Georgetown, Texas
