Dust off the box fans and grab the OFF! It’s almost time to celebrate World Mosquito Day! August 20, 2022, marks the 125th anniversary of the day Sir Ronald Ross discovered that mosquitoes carry malaria, thus changing the course of history. 

Despite my love of creepy-crawly-critters and all things found in my backyard, mosquitoes are an exception. Let’s explore how we can enjoy our celebration without including the celebrants.
