Mosquitoes at Greer Park
Original post made by Michelle, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Aug 13, 2012
I spoke to a gardener there this morning to express my concern that the over-watering of the grass (it's soaking) was contributing to the problem and he claimed that the wetness of the grass had nothing to do with the mosquito population. But the Santa Clara County Vector Control website says overwatered lawn is definitely a breeding ground.
If you are going to be at Greer for any amount of time, wear bug spray!
