  • Rick Yates, owner and operator of Mosquito Ranger® in Wilmington, will provide a naturally-controlled mosquito-free zone for this upcoming weekend's Firefly Music Festival in Dover Downs.
    Yates gives a few tips to the festival's producers to keep in mind: Keep hedges trimmed to reduce shady areas, repair any leaky or dripping outside faucets, and remove grass and debris piles.
    "If we can reduce the source of mosquitoes," Yates continues, "it's going to go a long way towards fixing the problem without applying any control products."
    The Firefly Festival will take place June 21-23 at the Woodlands of Dover International Speedway.
