Did You Know Only Female Mosquitoes Bite?
Week of June 22 is National Mosquito Control Awareness Week 2014
During “Mosquito Week” the AMCA and local mosquito control organizations aim to educate the general public about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and the important service provided by mosquito control workers throughout the United States and worldwide.
Displays, lectures, demonstrations and educational programs for children are just a few events which will focus on mosquitoes as disease carriers and pests. Information on the mosquito life cycle and tips on how to eliminate mosquito egg-laying sites around homes will help citizens reduce the numbers of mosquitoes in their own neighborhoods.
For more information on local events during “Mosquito Week”, please call Haze Lancaster, the local media contact. For more information on national events, please call or e-mail Laci LeBlanc, the national media contact.
