Smiling to see folk have dropped in back here.
Thanks to Nancy, blessed, Twins and Harriet for posting.
Harriet - I think lots of herbs are anti mosquito. I know lavender oil deters them, so feel the plant would too. I think spiders would set up a web to catch insects avoiding herbs, making it work for them.
I would think Rosemary and thyme might help too.
As in all things ecological, I think variety of species would help.
Here its a case of emptying all water/rain catchers, like pot saucers etc.
total water changes in bird baths, and washing them as mosquito eggs and lava can hold on for the refill.
You would have the hen water to look at, though I think a hen would look out for mosquitos. If they were quick enough.
I'm hoping to get outdoors today.
My weeds are growing , whether I'm coming or not.
Singapore daisy is running half way across my 'lawn'. (I laugh at the lawn terminology.)
That is the plant with origins in central american rather than a passing introduction into singapore.
There are other weeds / viney things have taken over so there is no shortage.
Living this day, today
Take a reality check; Remember to breathe; Do what I am able to do.
Look for the good in all.
