Re: west nile virus
I think I will try Mosquito Bits on the farm. We have several areas there
that stands in water when it rains much. Not that rain has been much of a
problem recently...but fall is getting closer! From what I can tell MB its
safe to use. I do get concerned a little about using any BT product around
my butterfly gardens. But I have to do something. As for my home gardens, I
bought some Cutter Bug Free BAckyard. Their label was one of those folded,
"tear on the perforation" kind. So I could read it till I had it at home.
Not really happy about that. Sounds just as toxic as the others I said I
wouldnt use. Since I have it, I will hang on to it. We use Deep Woods Off
when we go outside. Sits on a shelf in the backyard. Gets used alot! Thanks
for info. Its time to go play with the hostas now.
