 [The Entreaty]

We are now facing mosquitoes and other such insects during the cleaning operation, so we need some countermeasures against them. If you have any good ideas, please contact us and tell us about the repellents or how to avoid them becoming a problem. Of course, we need the same method in the devastated field, too.
