We also have swampy land up above the pond--the "upper stream"--and the mosquitoes probably do their thing there. It's probably not wet enough for frogs to stay consistently...so the mosquitoes get ahead.
Any ideas for attracting more dragonfly, frog, or bat action up by our lodge house and outdoor kitchen by the swamp would be much appreciated...and yes, smarter site design would have been a good idea, in hindsight. But that was before any of us really knew about permaculture at all.
I'm realizing the worst mosquitoes have been during rituals down by the creek, on the drive, way up on the hill...but I don't recall being eaten much near the swamp...now I'll pay more attention and observe better.
