Skeeter Control

In an effort to maximize the bank swallow population which decimates the mosquito population, we have tried a home made facsimile.  You can see the bank in the background where hundreds of them nest but experience the tragedies of bank collapse and even foxes and coyotes clawing up and digging them out.  This boarding house should be safer but I'm told that bank swallows will not buy in to such contrivances.  Hopes are that if they habituate we will be able to move them to other parts of the farm.
