Dragonflies are natures Mosquito Magnetic

Dragonflies are natures Mosquito Magnetic

Just as I left the house this morning the weather was on the muggy side and living next to the water mosquito's just love moist weather. Opening my shed door getting ready to some outdoor choirs I noticed Dragonflies everywhere. What a relief, the dragonflies favorite food is the dreaded Mosquito, these eating machines can eat their own weight in bugs in less than 30 minutes. The adult dragonfly likes to eat gnats, mayflies, flies, mosquitoes and other small flying insects. They sometimes eat butterflies, moths and bees too. I can tell you they are a welcome site at our home as we live next to a giant beaver pond and the dragon flies are out in hot pursuit of their favorite quarry the mosquito. Currently in my yard I could count up to 100 or more dragon flies protecting our civil liberties to enjoy a summer day without being harassed by mosquitoes. Our beaver pond is the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes and dragonflies.
