Author: Nikki Jasper

If you’re not familiar with the mosquito species Anopheles, you might want to learn about it. The species of mosquito known as Anopheles quadrimaculatus is responsible for the spread of a virus known as Mayaro virus, or MV, which is similar to malaria. This disease has torn across South America and the Caribbean, and if left unchecked, the mosquitoes could spread the virus in America.

Unfortunately, this species is prevalent in Massachusetts— you may have seen them in your basement during the winter, or nipping at your feet at dusk. How do you keep mosquitoes at bay?
