Muchos Mosquitoes by GLRC Environment Report
GLRC reports: With above normal rain in much of the country this spring...mosquitoes have been heavier in many areas. The quick warm up after a cool spring has also helped hatch out a lot of the pests. For more "buzz" (sorry) on this year's mosquito hatch, read or listen to GLRC Environment Report's BUMPER CROPS OF MOSQUITOES and be sure to click on the links to learn about the West Nile Virus threat. There's a ton of information ranging from locations with confirmed positive results for human, veterinary, bird, sentinel & mosquito, to symptoms and things you can do to prevent mosquitos from biting you and your family. Also learn how heartworm can be transmitted via mosquito to your pets from Merial, manufacturer of HEARTGARD.
If we love to hate the mosquito, why then do we have The official Mosquito RingtoneTM ? According to this site, It's the sound of a mosquito that only teenagers "should" be able to hear! In their article Students use high-pitched ring tone that many adults can't hear, WZZM, Grand Rapids reports: The ring tone is a spin-off of technology that was originally meant to repel teens. A security company developed the tone to help stores annoy youths loitering in front of their stores while leaving adults unaffected.
