The Erie Canal used to be approx. 40 ft. from my back door, before I moved south. The best thing I found to keep mosquitoes at bay was to plant marigolds around the yard. We never had a mosquito problem after that, and I still plant marigolds here in the south. Works great, because bugs don't like the smell! (07/20/2004)
