Afraid to go out in the backyard?

Globe West reports today that the warm winter and rainy spring and early summer have made for prime conditions for mosquito breeding -- and some mosquito control experts are seeing more of the pesky bugs than usual.

The mosquitoes can be more than just an annoyance. Consider the reports that the bloodsuckers have already been found to have EEE and West Nile virus. The latter finding came from bugs trapped in Needham last month.
