+Poidawg Posted January 20, 2006 Share Posted January 20, 2006 Recently while hunting down a cache I noticed a bunch of tree holes filled with water and mosquito larva. The worst larva of all a tiger mosquito - their bite is wicked, you feel them biting and they are like stalkers, they dont just buzz around and hope for a good shot. they stalk you... I thought, HEY, why can't geocachers carry some sort of mosquito larva kill stuff, that we can just plunk into a tree hole to kill those pesky skeeters while caching?? I would be willing do to it, and so today I e-mailed my counties Mosquito Abatement to ask what they thought. Cachers are sometimes in remote areas, walking not riding by real fast like mountain bikers, and we are usually looking right in areas which might have a skeeter larva population that we can zap before they have a chance to zap us. I was wondering how many people would be interested in carrying some sort of moquito dunk while caching? If the mosquito abatement people are all for it, Im more than willing to help lower the skeeter population a bit. I know the dunks they have are geared towards keeping the larva from maturing, but I need to make certain they are ok in a tree environment, and that it is okay with the county...
