Not that its a quick fix for those bugs that bite. But, three years ago we built a small garden pond in the back yard, mainly to benefit the songbirds we have here. Well, the birds could care less about it.
We put some goldfish in it after we found out that the birds had no interest. Its not big enough for Koi, its only 350 to 400 gallons.
Well, this year we have more dragonflies than ever, that grew from our small pond. And a bumper crop of frogs and toads.
In the last week, I've only been bug bit twice. We spend a lot of time on our back deck cookin, and relaxin.
