Summer is almost here—at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere—and that means lots of great things are possible, including camping, swimming, hiking, fishing, boating, baseball or just enjoying a cold drink on a warm beach. Of course, the season has its minor annoyances as well, and the one that comes to mind for me is mosquitoes. 

Certainly, it’s no big deal for most of us if one of these little creatures decides to suck a bit of blood from our veins. After all, it’s not as if some hideous vampire decided to make a precipitous 10-pint withdrawal from our personal blood bank. And usually all that is left behind is a bump that itches like crazy for a few days. We can put up with that, unless, of course, the mosquito in question is carrying something like West Nile virus, which can be fatal. Still, that’s probably not something we normally worry about.
