Flood of brackish water mosquitoes

Original post made by Mosquito Bitten, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Aug 28, 2014

We've noticed a flood of brackish water mosquitoes and bites. Anyone else? Did some area of the baylands flood recently to trigger this infestation?

How about firing the Ranger who opened the levee without informing Vector Control and created this cloud of mosquitoes?

Please don't repeat stories just to stimulate controversy.

The fact that we're having a "slow News day" is, in itself, GOOD NEWS.

Aren't there bats and other wonderful critters in the area who will help decimate the mosquitoes? One can spray themselves w/repellent. Is it really that big of a deal?

Blame the idiot who opened the floodgates, and the county, which hasn't sprayed for mosquitoes since 2007!
