ORKIN, AND THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION, REMIND EVERYBODY THAT SUMMER IS MOSQUITO-SEASON.  THAT'S BECAUSE MOSQUITO-POPULATIONS ARE DEPENDENT ON THE WEATHER:  JUNE, JULY, AND AUGUST ARE PRIME MOSQUITO-MONTHS, DUE TO WARM SUMMER-TEMPERATURES.  THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT FOR HOMEOWNERS TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS NOW--TO REDUCE MOSQUITO-POPULATIONS.  THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO INCLUDE: THINNING OUTDOOR-VEGETATION; REPAIRING WINDOW-SCREENS; AND EMPTYING ANY STANDING-WATER FOUND IN GUTTERS, BIRDBATHS, AND FLOWER-POTS.  ALSO, REMEMBER THAT MOST TYPES OF MOSQUITOES ARE MORE ACTIVE AT BOTH DUSK AND DAWN.  BE SURE TO USE INSECT-REPELLENT, AND TO WEAR LONG SLEEVES AND PANTS--OR CONSIDER STAYING INDOORS DURING THESE HOURS.  AND, ALWAYS HAVE SCREENS ON YOUR WINDOWS AND DOORS--TO KEEP MOSQUITOES OUT.  IT ONLY TAKES A MOMENT TO GET BITTEN BY AN INFECTED MOSQUITO--SO PROTECT YOURSELF, EVERY TIME YOU GO OUTSIDE.  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON CONTROLLING MOSQUITOES AROUND YOUR HOME, VISIT "ORKIN"-DOT-COM--OR "C-D-C"-DOT-GOV.
