"ORKIN" AND THE "CENTERS FOR DISEASE-CONTROL AND -PREVENTION" REMIND EVERYBODY THAT SUMMER IS MOSQUITO-SEASON:  BECAUSE MOSQUITO-POPULATIONS ARE DEPENDENT ON WARM WEATHER, THE PRIME MOSQUITO-SEASON FOR MOST OF THE U-S IS SUMMER INTO EARLY FALL.  AND, MOSQUITOES ARE KNOWN CARRIERS OF SEVERAL DISEASES--INCLUDING "ZIKA"-VIRUS, "CHIKUNGUNYA"-VIRUS, AND "WEST NILE"-VIRUS.  HOMEOWNERS CAN HELP REDUCE MOSQUITOES, BY THINNING OUTDOOR VEGETATION, REPAIRING WINDOW-SCREENS, AND EMPTYING STANDING-WATER IN AREAS WHERE WATER CAN COLLECT.  WHAT'S MORE, EVEN THOUGH MOST TYPES OF MOSQUITOES ARE MORE ACTIVE AT DUSK AND DAWN, SOME WILL ALSO BITE DURING THE DAY.  SO, YOU SHOULD PROTECT BOTH YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY FROM MOSQUITO-BITES, BY USING INSECT-REPELLANT ANY TIME YOU GO OUTSIDE--AND BY WEARING LONG SLEEVES AND PANTS.  YOU SHOULD ALSO INSTALL SCREENS ON YOUR WINDOWS AND DOORS, TO KEEP MOSQUITOES OUT.  SINCE IT ONLY TAKES A MOMENT TO GET BITTEN BY AN INFECTED MOSQUITO, YOU SHOULD PROTECT YOURSELF, EVERY TIME YOU GO OUTSIDE.  FOR MORE TIPS ON CONTROLLING MOSQUITOES AROUND YOUR HOME, VISIT "ORKIN"-DOT-COM OR "C-D-C"-DOT-GOV-SLASH-"ZIKA".
