Mosquito Control Spraying

As summer arrives, so to will our shared annoyance with the mosquito.  This month we take a look at the growing national trend of using mosquito control pesticides to rid our backyards and communities of this dreaded nuisance, and the collateral damage to our non-targeted beneficial insects that comes with it.  Doug Lockard investigates the more common chemicals and application processes, the impact on native habitats, and some insights into dealing with their use in his article Reflections on Mosquito Control Spraying.

    We are interested in having Doug Lockard speak at our master gardener meeting on the subject of mosquito spraying. Please have him contact me at this email address if he could speak. We maintain a pollinator garden in Murrells Inlet, SC.
