    Default East Arkansas rice paddy

    Skeeter time again. The rice is up and the tail water will stand in ditches outside the fields and raise clouds of mosqitoes. Anyone got a large can of OFF?

    Too bad you can't put a light coating of oil on that water. That stops the buggers from coming out an going airborne. I wonder if vegitable oil would work?

    Pete, they have to have the water running thru the field at a slow rate to keep it from becoming stagnat, so anything you put in would be flushed out pretty quick.

    Thats a new one on me, never knew they had rice paddys in Arkansas. Very pretty even if the mosqitoes eat you alive.

    David, I live 30 west of Wynne on highway 64. I take the grandkids roller skating at wynne quite often.
    Thomas, sometimes they do get the combine stuck BIG TIME, but they drain the paddy and let it dry out before harvest.
