Update On Crickets And Wasps In San Gabriel LA
From Charles Funaro
This is an update from my July 10, 2018, report. Since then, we have seen a few crickets but not the numbers seen in previous years. The green parrots have returned, also fewer in number. I found two mud-dauber wasp nests but I have not seen any wasps. Brown widow spider webs are also evident but I do not see the spiders perched and ready to pounce. Our reflecting pond did develop a healthy population of mosquito larvae (which were summarily dispatched) - still have not seen any flying mosquitoes, and only a few houseflies. Still no sign of tomato hornworm. A few dragonflies are also around, not as many as in prior years.
In summary, the insect populations in our yard continue to be substantially reduced. Friends who live a few miles away in the Pomona Valley report abundant mosquitoes; thus, whatever is causing the reduction in our neighborhood may be localized.
