Bug zappers

Phoebe nest

Two pairs of birds nested on our front porch this spring.

The wren made a home inside a cardboard box and the phoebe tucked her nest up under the eaves.

We haven't seen a single mosquito with four bug zappers on the job.

What kind of bug zapper do you use? Sounds impressive for your swampy area!

Terry--I think the four bug zappers are the two phoebes and the two wrens. Anna and Mark got the deluxe model zappers, since the four will (hopefully) multiply into at least a dozen bug zappers by the end of the summer!

Jake --- You nailed it! (And a good thing too since I seem to be about a week and a half behind on comments. Ah, planting season.... :-) )
