I've been told that if you stand anywhere in the state of Michigan, you are no more than one mile from a body of water. For me, that amounts to one lake, two rivers, and a swampy region at the back edge of my property (runoff from one of those rivers, I think).
The end result is that the crickets, of which we have plenty, almost have to crawl into bed with you in order to be heard over the bullfrog symphony.
And if mosquitoes barked, no one in this state would get any sleep.
