Russ was interviews by Fox @ 5 News on Memorial Day weekend and shared with viewers how they can better protect their families and pets from mosquitoes by practicing the very important 5 mosquito prevention “T’s”.

It is simply amazing how much moisture and rainwater can collect in the smallest of things, giving pesky mosquitoes a chance to breed and grow in numbers quite quickly. Be sure that dog dishes, children’s toys and playthings, empty pots and planters ( including the drainage pan underneath), and even water bottles and small bottles caps are removed when not “in use” or turned over to keep water from collecting. Hundreds of eggs can be laid by a female mosquito in an area as small as a bottle cap.
