Mosquito

Mosquitoes (approx. 1/4" long) breed in stagnant water, where the eggs hatch into larvae. In the U.S. adult mosquitoes of some species can transmit encephalitis to people. Mosquito control is usually a community and public health project, but around homes, eliminate items that may collect and hold water and change the water in bird baths every two days.

If mosquitoes are bothersome at backyard events, personal repellents are the best solution. Bug "zappers" attract few mosquitoes but are effective at capturing other types of flying insects. Keep "zappers" away from areas of activity, such as the deck or swimming pool.
