Those looking to get outside and away from COVID-19 restrictions as temperatures warm up will likely find conditions a little more buggy. That's because a combination of warmer, humid weather and recent heavy rains are expected to generate a mosquito population boom. While there are propane-fueled mosquito traps and insect zappers, Mike Draney, a U-W Green Bay biology instructor, says some simple steps can help you better contend with the bugs.
Draney says while insect zappers can take out mosquitos they can also attract and kill insects that are beneficial for gardeners. He also recommends using Deet insect repellants when you go outside.
