Pretty ironic that another recent column is about controlling mosquitoes. When I was a kid here in Brevard, in the late 50s and early 60s, we had mosquitoes at night, but, never during the day. We could deal with them then, but, they are far worse now. I also never saw any bromeliads in any of my friends' or neighbors' yards. Now, I see them everywhere. Coincidence? I don't believe so.

Hi Mel,
Send me a text when you want come. 321-265-1494
Garcia-Yes, total Coincidence! I say come on by and see for yourself. I've got so many frogs living in the leaves of my broms that they eat any mosquito larvae. They have their own ecosystems. Plus you are suppose to flush the centers out periodically to keep them from getting too much buildup of leaves and such to prevent rotting the centers.

Or you can put in Mosquito dunks, but, how many people really do any of that? Face it, most people are not very responsible in any aspect of their lives. If they were, so many of our problems would not be problems. That is why we are referred to as "the responsible few".

I use mosquito bits, which is made form the makers of dunks. And almost weekly throw them into all of my bromeliads after rinsing them out. I have hardly any mosquitos in my yard despite a huge collection of bromeliads.
