Not sure if this observation helps anyone, but the bugs are thick in SD right now. While I was watering the garden tonight my son dropped a flashlight in the 5 gallon bucket of water I was using. Hundreds of the little boogers immediately dove towards the light and were caught in the water. It worked better than a bug zapper and any beneficials could be scooped out I imagine.
We are considering installing some night lighting in the aquaponics tanks to help with feeding the fish. I wonder if anyone has any experience with that they would like to share? Now if only yellow flies and horse flies were out at night.
