Doesnít EHD occur due to drought and contamination of water sources from domestic livestock pissing and crapping in their watering hole?   This what Iíve heard so just confirming. 

If that is the caseÖ.I am dumbfounded that landowners donít provide water to the wildlife in areas prone to EHD.   Itís not that hard to fence off a 250 gallon tank to keep livestock out.  The deer will find it.

EHD comes from a midge (small insect) that bites the deer and makes it sick. Most deer that get infected are found by water sources because one of the symptoms of the disease on the deer is to be very thirsty before perishing.

For what you asked Dale, yes the mosquito donut dunks will kill Midge larvae and gnats as well. I live on the western edge of Whitman county and all the whitetail around my place are doing fine there's actually more than I'm used to seeing and the water is still running behind my house. I have a small spring that stays on my property and they seem to be staying around for that water. I also have less mosquitoes this year than I've ever had so the larvae from those Midge flies and other types might be affected also. This was sent out to folks in Kamiah the other day.

Seen a dead deer myself the other day.
It's a story for another day though, or sometimes things are better left unsaid.

They should hand that treatment out to every landowner that will take it. Save alot of deer. Its a painful death these deer go through.
