"ORKIN" AND THE "C-D-C" REMIND EVERYBODY THAT THE PRIME MOSQUITO-SEASON, FOR MOST OF THE U-S, IS SUMMER INTO EARLY FALL.  THAT'S BECAUSE MOSQUITO-POPULATIONS DEPEND ON WARM WEATHER.  MOSQUITOES ARE KNOWN TO SPREAD THE PATHOGENS THAT CAUSE SEVERAL DISEASES--INCLUDING "ZIKA", "CHIKUNGUNYA", AND "WEST NILE".  SO, HOMEOWNERS CAN HELP REDUCE MOSQUITOES, BY THINNING OUTDOOR VEGETATION, REPAIRING WINDOW-SCREENS, AND EMPTYING CONTAINERS THAT HAVE STANDING WATER--OR CLEANING AREAS WHERE WATER CAN COLLECT, SO THAT THE WATER CAN FLOW.  MOST SPECIES OF MOSQUITOES ARE MORE ACTIVE AT DAWN AND DUSK--BUT SOME WILL ALSO BITE DURING THE DAY.  SO, YOU CAN PROTECT BOTH YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY FROM MOSQUITO-BITES, BY USING INSECT-REPELLANT ANYTIME YOU GO OUTSIDE--AND BY WEARING LONG-SLEEVED SHIRTS AND PANTS.  YOU CAN ALSO INSTALL SCREENS ON 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, VISIT "ORKIN"-DOT-COM--OR "C-D-C"-DOT-GOV-SLASH-"ZIKA".
