Emerald commented on A Carer Volunteer Scheme

Hi Aaniya, 

Yes agree with you on the power of volunteering! 

I got a similar ideas about volunteer, and from the volunteer perspective to on "planning now", idea is to use the volunteer opportunities to "learn/experience" how it feel to get old/age/dying, and eventually turn those insight to "plan now" on dying and hopefully change the perspective of dying, e.g. to treasure the time and life and the love one now..etc. 
might be could check out my post here:

Emerald commented on Mosquito Fight in Siberia

Wondering if the link about lavricide would be useful here.. seem like there are also some bio-base lavicide ....

"Bti and B. sphaericus are both naturally occurring soil bacterium registered as larvicides under the names Aquabac, Teknar, Vectobac, LarvX, and VectoLex CG. Typically in granular form, pellets are distributed on the surface of stagnant water locations. When the mosquito larvae ingest the bacteria, crystallized toxins are produced that destroy the digestive tract, resulting in death. These larvicides will last only a few weeks in water and pose no danger to humans, non-targeted animal species, or the environment when used according to directions."
