After more than two inches of drenching rain on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week our flying nemeses have been given abundant opportunities to spawn, lay larvae and breed in large numbers. There is a high probability that many a Father’s Day barbeque will be assaulted by mosquitoes and horse flies this weekend. Our marshes have been replenished and puddles have been seen everywhere well into Thursday. We urge you to take defensive measures to protect you, your kids and your outdoor experience. Last issue we had a list of recommended counter measures, take a look online and do battle against these critters.
It needs to be noted that Lawrence Mayor Martin Oliner has been taking his hyper-local micro-management duties quite seriously to the point of involving himself in all manner of final solutions for the many mosquitoes and flies that beset his marsh-surrounded village, for this alone he earns the sobriquet of “Lord of the Flies” (we mean this in a positive way) and deserves another term in office just for his valiant forays jousting with these nefarious winged predators. All politics are local and Oliner knows the devil is in the anti-fly details.
