Cemeteries! Windshield Wash Basins! Karsts! (What’s a Karst?)
General Session
You’ve heard it many times: Mosquitoes can develop in as little water as is in a soda cap. Finding the water sources that mosquitoes are developing in and addressing those is part of a successful mosquito management plan. Everyone makes it sound so easy: Simply find all the water sources and all your problems are gone. But finding every water source is nearly impossible! While there are the obvious places (bird baths, old tires, potted plant bases, etc.), looking to some of the less obvious spots can help improve your efficacy. Tune in to hear some of the most unusual mosquito breeding spots you’ve ever heard.
