Weather causes mosquitoes

Posted: Updated:
Allen County -

Summertime means mosquito time and people need to protect themselves.

The muggy, rainy weather we've had recently is perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
     To avoid those pesky little buggers, Bill Kelly with the Allen County Health Department says it's best to eliminate any standing water around your property.

Kelly says mosquitoes need to be taken seriously because they can cause deadly diseases like West Nile Virus.
     Kelly says 17 states, including Ohio, have preliminary results showing West Nile in humans.
