– DRY ICE FACTS
Dry Ice attracts mosquitoes. Place a block of dry ice in your yard and the mosquitoes will be attracted to it rather than humans or pets (Note: dry ice will burn grass, foliage, etc. so place dry ice on dirt.) Dry ice can be utilized in freeze branding. Dry ice combined with detergent will improve porosity in irrigation wells. Dry ice alone will improve porosity in domestic wells.
