    Fortunately, mosquitoes don't travel far from their origins, so it doesn't take much distance of dry cleared land to dramatically reduce how many there are where people are.

    Why not check out your county's mosquito spraying schedule for your area. Explore the history of disease and mosquitoes in Florida, including before scientists became involved.
    Like I said, in the last 50 years. Spray to kill has worked, engineering other species to kill them hasn't.

    We live further north than you and once you get out of clear and manipulated land the bugs and little critters make it unbearable. The top of that list is mosquitoes. And you live more in a semi-tropical zone than we do - while declaring people shouldn't live there is they don't like mosquitoes.

    But for what "scientists" have done, including those in regards to altering land and controlling water, you couldn't live there - or least would be running from your car to your house.
    I am sure I have spent more time in wooded, swamps, marshes, rivers, boggs, forests, oceans, beaches than you. All over Florida.

    Even that really has very little to do with this topic.
    Pretty sure you are not qualified to say whether I am or not. But lets go over this again. I actually live here. I spend much time from the Keys, to almost Jacksonville with some time on the west coast doing a variety of activities including racing, atvs, boating, fishing, surfing and mud bogging.
    So I will put my experience up against anyones that wants to say different.

    Exactly what are your qualifications? Epidemiologist? Hydrologist? Chemist? Pharmacist? Entomologist? Doctor?

    When was the last 'engineering' of other species tried last?

    Surely, with all your knowlege, you are up on the latest research?

    Well, I do know at least that thousands of paint jobs have been ruined by love bugs. That my friend, whom I see lives across the nation, was the latest big feat of engineering. Oh, and did nothing to curb the mosquito population.

    Sorry Charlie, I've been all over that state too....just about everywhere. 13 years with a herpetologist...entire vacations spent in the swamps, sandhills, sugar sand roads, all over Merritt Wildlife Refuge and Cape Kennedy....even places that are off limits after 9/11....piney woods, Everglades, etc. diving the reefs, fishing the fresh and salt water...for 47 yrs. Gee, not quite 50. And I like to get down there at least once a yr now.

    I have a background in biology and epidemiology. How about you?

    Exactly was that 'experiment?' LOLOLOL The lovebugs were in FL back in 1968.....
