West Bench, Faulder, Okanagan Lake West
I live on Sunglo and like last year, the mosquitos are bad for about 2 hours in the early evening. This goes away as the summer gets hotter so only seems to be a problem for a few weeks. I would much rather put up with a few mosquitos and not spray if the conservation people feel it would be detrimental to Max Lake. In my childhood, mosquitos were sprayed all summer with DDT. I think we've learrned that there are conseqences to the use of pesticides killing other animals as well. Malathion kills all insects, so the dragonflies, birds and frogs (and other critters) at Max Lake would all be affected. Let's put up with the mosquitos for a few weeks. The mosquitos are only going to be a problem when we have rainy springs. Then we'll still have the birds, frogs and bees around.
