All Natural Mosquito Control

With all the rain we’ve had this season, we are finding ourselves inundated with mosquitos, and of course some of them find themselves getting inside the RV. It’s hard to concentrate on my work with those pesky things buzzing around me.

Well, I don’t have any problem with flying insects in my office anymore.

Our resident mosquito control

This little guy has setup shop near the door between my office and the living area in our RV. It sets up its web every night, and takes it down mid-morning. This is classic Orb spider behavior. It seems to alternate daily between which side of the web it is on.

The only drawback to this mosquito control solution is that I tend to forget that it’s there. Unless I turn the light on right next to the web, it is completely invisible. It’s right a face level for me as I enter the office. One night I went into the office to close my blinds and ended up walking face first right into the web, destroying it.

I’m pretty sure that it was unhappy about that, but it rebuilt the next night so I think we’re all good.
