Asian Tiger Mosquito
The Mosquito has a long, piercing proboscis. It has long legs and smaller wings.
Mosquitoes are an annoyance because of the bites they produce that can cause extensive itching.
Some species of Mosquitoes can cause malaria, yellow fever, some types of encephalitis and dengue fever. Public health control measures have almost eliminated these problems in the United States. However, they are severe pests in warm weather because of their annoyance to people. Many outdoor gatherings are interrupted or prevented because people do not want to be aggravated by these pests.
One way to prevent a mosquito problem is to use repellent.
Repellents are substances that cause a mosquito to avoid biting people. Persons working or playing in mosquito-infested areas will find repellents very helpful in preventing mosquito bites. Repellents are formulated and sold as aerosols, creams, solids (sticks) and liquids. For more than 40 years, DEET has been the standard in mosquito repellents. Check the label for this active ingredient.
Follow these rules when using repellents:
