Tom Im surprised to see so many of them this year. Last year a few and the year before that not many at all. Of course years before that they were terrible. We had a bad winter and I had hoped the larve was getting froze out but that didnt happen. Not sure why this is happening . You would think the larve would drown!
Im having reasonable success using a homemade repellent using hot sauce, hot water, liquid ivory dish detergent and vegetable (cooking) oil.
If you have a few cloves of garlic, throw that in. They hate this stuff. It can take a few rains.
