All regions of the country are welcoming the warmer weather as
well as the pests that come with it. Mosquitoes
populations are emerging early in the season despite the
unfavorable weather seen in some regions.
These pests not only cause itchy welts but are also known to
spread diseases to human such as West Nile virus,
Yellow fever, and Eastern Equine encephalitis.
Fortunately mosquitoes can be avoided when outdoors by using
insect repellent containing DEET or picaridin.
