    The permethrin worked amazingly today! Much fewer ticks on the clothing and skin. Somehow, one fell in my pants pocket. It died from the permethrin. I'm almost positive that the tiger beetle is Cicindela abdominalis, the eastern pine barrens tiger beetle. We managed to catch one, making closeup photos easier.

    Sadly, it looks like all of the pitcher plants have been overgrown by competing woods.

    No problem. Send me a gallon zip lock baggie full of it and I will ID it right up.

    Hi Phil & Wireman, glad the Permethrin is working out for you guys! If you have trouble finding it again, try Amazon. I swear there's nothing you can't find there!! Although I do love going into Gander, place is great.

    Mosquito Coils are great too for area protection. You can get them anywhere that sells camping equipment. The most effective/economical reppellant for a non-windy, outdoor area (picnic tables, workstations?)
    Off makes a version that's more expensive for the same thing, just use generic camping brands.

    They are much Cheaper, but not as portable as Thermacells (which has the same active ingredient) and much cheaper than using Yardguard.

    I camp in what happens to be mosquito/tick-infested areas so I've personally tried & tested a lot of methods for controlling mosquitos & ticks because I love camping at those spots in the Summer but I Hate the bugs!!!

    Hope this all helps...

    Perhaps the sphagnum you found is Sphagnum compactum

    Here are some images for comparison

    That looks like it. We've been finding a lot of Sphagnum lately. So far it looks like we have compactum, molle, rubellum, and possibly fusca. We'll know more once we get an authority or a better book of Sphagnum.
