Did you know that a wetland can reduce the number of mosquitoes?

Mosquito eggs can lie dormant in soils for over a year then hatch with the least little bit of rainwater. But a mosquito's predators need more water – the amounts found in restored wetlands such as this.

If we want mosquito control, we must add enough water suitable for predators like salamanders and dragonfly larvae.

Did You Know?
Smudge pots like these were widely used to fight mosquitoes in the early 1800s. They were filled with burning tar and billowed dark smoke throughout homes and barns. PHEW!
