MOSQUITOES COULD BE CELEBRATING THE 4TH WITH YOU

SIOUX CITY—WITH THE LARGE AMOUNT OF RAIN THAT FELL IN SIOUXLAND LAST MONTH AND FLOODING CONDITIONS NEAR CORRECTIONVILLE, MOSQUITOES COULD BE THICK THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

SIOUXLAND DISTRICT HEALTH ENVIRONMENTAL COORDINATOR HEALTH MICHELLE CLAUSEN-ROSENDAHL SAYS IT SEEMS MOSQUITO NUMBERS ARE UP FROM PAST YEARS.

SHE SAYS THEY WILL BEGIN MONITORING MOSQUITO POPULATIONS AND WEST NILE ACTIVITY LATER THIS SUMMER.

SHE SAYS RESIDENTS SHOULD AVOID BEING OUTSIDE AT DUSK, WEAR LONG-SLEEVE CLOTHING AND WEAR REPELLANT TO KEEP THE MOSQUITOES AT BAY.

THERE ARE ALSO BUG PATCHES THAT CAN BE APPLIED ONTO YOUR SKIN FOR A FEW DAYS TO BEAT THE BITE.
