Neighbour Colleen Thomas writes with some information on the recent mosquito plague:
We have had tons of mosquitos recently and wondered if any one else is suffering the same way? About ten years ago we had a similar problem and contacted the health authorities, who came to inspect our local drains. They said that the design of the old drains caused there to be a residue of old stagnant water lying in the bottom of the drain. They came around and sprayed the drains with an oil which coated the surface of the water, preventing the mosquitos from emerging from the surface. They also sent teams to re design and change the structure of the drains. I am not sure what the cause is this time.
Does anybody have news about what’s going on this time?
