Dealing with mosquitoes is a common issue many cities in the United States face. While these bugs are universally disliked, some cities have become accustomed to their presence and have developed methods to manage them.
With the arrival of warmer weather and outdoor gatherings, mosquitoes also come out to play. Like us, they’re always looking for a hot spot to dwell and enjoy the summer.
When the weather is warm and there’s been rainfall, mosquitoes tend to thrive. They typically lay their eggs in low-lying pools and can reproduce alarmingly. It only takes a few days to a couple of weeks to go from the larva stage to full-grown adults. To learn more about these pesky insects, check out this resource on mosquitoes.
