"ORKIN" AND THE "CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION" REMIND EVERYBODY THAT SUMMER IS MOSQUITO-SEASON.  A FEMALE MOSQUITO CAN LAY UP TO A HUNDRED EGGS AT A TIME--AND THE EGGS HATCH INTO LARVAE WITHIN 24 TO 48 HOURS.  FEMALE MOSQUITOES ONLY NEED A SMALL AMOUNT OF WATER TO BREED--MAKING THEM VERY HARD TO CONTROL.  HOMEOWNERS CAN HELP REDUCE MOSQUITO-POPULATIONS BY THINNING OUTDOOR VEGETATION, REPAIRING WINDOW-SCREENS, AND EMPTYING STANDING-WATER IN AREAS WHERE WATER MAY COLLECT.  MOSQUITO-POPULATIONS ARE DEPENDENT ON WARM WEATHER--AND THE PRIME MOSQUITO-SEASON FOR MOST OF THE U-S IS SUMMER, INTO EARLY FALL.  SO, PROTECT BOTH YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY FROM MOSQUITO-BITES, WHEN YOU GO OUTSIDE.  DUSK AND DAWN ARE THE TIMES WHEN MOST TYPES OF MOSQUITOES ARE REALLY ACTIVE.  MAKE SURE TO USE INSECT-REPELLENT, WEAR LONG SLEEVES AND PANTS, OR CONSIDER STAYING INDOORS, DURING THESE HOURS.  IT ONLY TAKES A MOMENT TO GET BITTEN BY AN INFECTED MOSQUITO.  FOR MORE TIPS ON CONTROLLING MOSQUITOES AROUND YOUR HOME, VISIT "ORKIN"-DOT-COM--OR "C-D-C"-DOT-GOV-SLASH-"WEST-NILE".
