We are really happy to report that black fly season is now over. The heatwave with humidity has now broken, and during the 30 degree temps we noticed that we were only swatting at mosquitoes.
Our mosquito machine is perched on the restaurant deck in test mode. It will definitely have to be moved to another location, it is as loud as a vacuum, actually, that's exactly what it sounds like. It probably IS a vacuum, sucking in the mosquitoes who come near. Our reward for the machine's work? We can peek into the basket and see all the dead mosquitoes. There are some but we would have hoped for more. We'll give it more time and a new location.
