    Default What about the skeeters?

    There's another thread about birds and feeders and such but my question is where are all the skeeters this year? Normally by this time we have to<br>absolutely bathe in Deep Woods Off just to take the dog(s) out...this year there seems to be a significant absence of the aggravating little peckerwoods.<br>Anybody else having the same experience?

    No rain means no mosquitoes

    I know but our lake/swamp always has ensured a "healthy crop" until this year...what's up with that?

    We had some cold weather after the last warm spell that had a lot of rain which probably knocked them down but from what we see they are starting to pick up a bit, but a not of standing water around. I was wondering when the back flies where coming but mid day yesterday they were bombing me.

    Our black flies were here a month ago...they lasted their normal 2 weeks or so...I usually joke when somebody asks "where did the black flies go?" and my normal answer is "the freaking skeeters ate them"...but not this year...and we haven't been exceptionally dry at least here in central U.P.

    Skeeters weren’t too bad the last 4-5 days in central Sconnie - but they are out there.

    Too dry in se wisco for skeeter breeding. Thats the only benefit to drought.
    Skeeters and ticks are busy in ne wisco though if what we saw this weekend at the snomoshack is true all over up there

    Come to the western UP and the skeeters will carry you away.
