- Warm water temperatures in April resulted in many Black Flies hatching at the same time
- Many windy days in May have blown in flies from outside the treatment area. They can fly 2 miles on their own but strong winds can carry them much further.
- This year we have 33 landowners that do not give us permission to go on their property to treat streams.
Our treatments this year are on or ahead of schedule. We have a full , experienced crew working very hard to suppress an unusually abundant population.
