Mosquito Safety and You

Mosquito Safety & You

The State's advisory this week regarding Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) should prompt cautionary measures by those who spend time outdoors. While it is very rare to contract EEE, outdoor time can be made safer by taking simple precautions until the first, hard frost prompts the mosquito population into dormancy.
