If we are spraying to kill mosquitoes, most likely other insects are getting hit as well.  

Use organic and herbal solutions, please.
Remember Silent Spring?
Did you read about Monsanto insecticide and herbicides found in honey?

Our plants have no chemicals.   



Did you see many these this year?
They were all over the farm.
In fact, there was a fire fly at OLD CITY
this past Friday evening
Mid September?…Awesome.
