Summer is quickly approaching, which means quarantined families can spend more time outdoors. Whether grilling out for Memorial Day or playing a game of backyard softball, mosquitoes and other pests are sure to make an appearance. But, you can BITE BACK!

Mosquito season begins in parts of the United States in early spring and runs through the summer months. Climate is a leading factor in determining mosquito populations, and also correlates to whether a mosquito-borne illness surges or remains dormant from year to year.
