Warmer, humid weather doesn't just bring outdoor fun - it can bring mosquitos. These insects thrive in wet, hot climates, and it's not just the current forecast that brings them out. The location's weather patterns over the past several months can determine how many mosquitoes emerge.
- Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants to keep prevent bites
- Use EPA-registered repellents when spending time outdoors
- Replace outdoor lights with yellow bug lights, which tend to attract fewer bugs
- Eliminate standing water in rain gutters, buckets, and in tires where mosquitoes can breed
