Mosquito

It is officially mosquito season here in southwest Florida. But, what we experience these days is nothing like what we’d experience if it weren’t for mosquito control. We’re joined by Eric Jackson, he's Public Information Officer with the Lee County Mosquito Control District, to learn what lengths they go to to try and reduce the numbers of these flying pests. And we’re joined by Dr. Jonathan Day, he's Professor of Medical Entomology at the University of Florida to find out why mosquitos feast on some people and not others.
