Re: mosquitoes
Dear Claude,
My grandfather in Michigan told me he kept his purple martin houses spic and 
span and painted white (the way they evidently like them) because they can 
eat 3,000 mosquitoes a day.  Don't know if it's true, and as the man Grandpa 
paid to paint the houses said, in some disgust, "who the hell counts 'em?"  
But btwn birds and bats, not to mention dragonflies, there can be some 
serious skeeters et.
Martha
