Win the Battle of the Mosquito: Cut Off Its Rations

I've noticed a shortage of mosquitoes where I live. How so? I've forgotten how many months it has been see I was last aware of being bitten!

So when I was asked to do some research on mosquitoes and leaf infusion teas and their effect, pro or con, on the mosquito, I jumped right in. And it was most interesting. I think you will find it every bit as interesting.

And in my studies and searches, I formulated a "crazy notion" in my head that just might contain a bit of truth to it. I saved it for the last paragraph of my article. After you read it, let me know if it doesn't sound good to you. I hope it's correct and someone proves it.

I will have to read the article tomorrow or the next day. I am travelling and not all websites will come up for me, for some reason. I think this Tablet has issues!

Is it OK to ask where you're headed? And what brand is the tablet?

I am in Cambridge, England UK, visiting one of my sons. I have an Asus slider but it's several years old and was second hand when I got it. I may have put too much into memory, must try clearing a bit of space. I have been pleased with it but it's getting old, like me.

I was given an Apple iPOD by a friend, who some months later died of mesothelioma. It's operating system can no longer be updated, but it's still functioning.

That was an interesting article, so starve the little pests by removing their bacterial food, with natural herbal tea!
