CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)
We are headed into what is known as National Mosquito Control Awareness Week. It starts on June 21st.
In one study, Charlotte was recently ranked #9 on the list of the worst mosquito cities in the United States.
A representative from Mosquito Joe visited WBTV News Saturday Morning to talk about prevention and protecting your yard and home. They are simple things we all can do, like drilling holes in the bottoms of tire swings, garbage and recycling bins, etc., to prevent rain water from accumulating.
