    I regret to inform you that DDT is not only bad, it's a crime against humanity & championing its cause really has no place anywhere IMO.

    DDT despite being an insecticide is also a killer of fish, birds, mammals and yes, the most arrogant of all mammals, humans.

    Anyone who thinks this is a good idea imo is certifiable for the loony bin.

    Wow, that had me aggro.

    So has anyone remembered / thought of using broken flower pots to increase homes for frogs to eat the mosquito's?

    Has anyone else made bat boxes in order to have some bats eat up the lil buggers?

    A fairly old post.
    The most important post in this thread is the first one with the simple design for a mosquito trap.

    It is amazing that some are still trying to Rubbish Rachel Carson so long after her death; when we should be building shrines to her. I suspect "21st Century Science Associates" is a Lyndon LaRouche front organisation. Amazing that everbody else can be so wrong and your ideas can be so right. Follow the money? Follow the arrogance!

    Apropos to your story re canned food with babies' pictures:-- The UN has been giving out DDT impregnated mosquito nets in Africa. However most end up as fish nets, wedding veils etc

    Want to be really scared? Talk to a professor of Chemistry like I did. Experts can be quietly, calmly, terrifying.
    DDT is no where near as bad as later generations of chlorinated hydrocarbons. In particular, the witches' brew Toxaphene, is a problem as there is no way of detecting it in the environment.(toxaphene products consist of between 100 and 220 compounds)

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons, the family name of DDT, floats on the top micron of the sea.
    This is where phytoplankton live and breed. the chemicals interfere with phytoplankton reproduction.
    Phytoplankton produce most of the planet's oxygen.
    All bioaccumulate in mammalian fat, and are mostly impossible to secrete except in mothers' milk. they are very persistant chemicals having half lives of decades

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons may play a role in female infertility and may be an underlying factor in certain gynecological conditions.

    This is one of the chief reasons I stopped eating fish in the 80's.

    Everything sprayed has made it to a river, and eventually to the ocean, as did all the DDT.

    Paranoid? Maybe, but I have seen some things, and done some stuff. I don't recommend it! ;)

    Well I have tonnes of frogs and we still have tonnes of shidoes. Anyways the first thing I though of is if this trap could be a good way to also catch them for feeding to birds? Have the traps near the birds so they could also eat them?

    I can guarantee this device is like tits on a bull in the tropics. :)

    Re frogs. I have hundreds if not thousands of frogs on my property. To be honest they really dont put much of a dent in the numbers from what i can see.
    I also have lots of microbats aswell and they dont really go for them. They prefer the moths.
