Great article in the New York Times about the Dragonfly: “Nature’s Drone, Pretty and Deadly” http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/02/science/dragonflies-natures-deadly-drone-but-prettier.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0 On a side note, we are excited to have started stocking dragonfly larvae into our lakes and ponds for mosquito control. More to come in May! I’ll also be sharing some pictures of our dragonfly harvest last week!
Demetrio earned the employee of the month honors for March. We always document our pond maintenance projects with before and after pictures, and he is always finding his way onto the pictures, as he is always active in completing the project. Without being told, he always knows the next step to keep a project moving properly. We enjoy working with Demetrio, as he has amazing work ethic. Congratulations Demetrio!
Interesting article about GIANT mosquitos. Brace yourself for the invasion of the giant mosquitoes: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/lake/os-lk-lauren-ritchie-giant-mosquitoes-20130327,0,6229382.column Fun fact: North Carolina has 1938 lakes, ponds, reservoirs, and other fishing bodies of water to choose from. With the addition of stormwater ponds retention ponds or BMPs, the number is probably closer to 10,000 plus!
