Uck Uck Uck, bitches
when I was a kid growing up in Camas in the early 60's there was an awful misquito problem. I lived above a LL baseball Park...I side now another field was a swamp...near my home above was another, down the road another...There were all kinds of cool swamps for me my brother and friends to explore. Trucks used to drive around neighborhoods spraying into the air malathion...the problem became north country legend worthy... A program was started where kids were paid to collect smooshed misquitos in jars and turn them in... I collected a pint jar 3/4 full and got paid for it... Just went out to play all summer long with a jar to collect them... The municipality folks would put a notice in the paper for retrieval and one of the sites for check in was the LL ball Park below my house...Anyone else recall things such as this?
