ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Sometimes mosquitos feel like they are everywhere – swirling around your outdoor activities, taking a bite or two (or more!) at exposed skin. They really do like how some of us smell! Besides being annoying, mosquitos can spread diseases among pets and humans. Tim talks with Sarah Short, an Ohio State entomologist, about how you can help prevent this insect from being a pesky pest to your family and your four-legged friends.
