Tech Test Tidbit: Nature’s breeding site
Tree trunks and branches may have holes that hold water, making them especially attractive to egg-laying mosquitoes. To eliminate this mosquito habitat, fill holes with water-resistant spray foam insulation designed to fill large gaps. If a tree’s hole does not hold water, leave it for birds and other wildlife to use.
