We are just getting into the heart of summer: a time to slide on our flip-flops and enjoy all that nature has to offer, including blue sky, fresh air and ... mosquitoes.
The recent rain in the area has led the Metropolitan Health District to warn San Antonio residents to watch out for these pesky parasites. Standing water, as the result of saturated ground and frequent rain, is providing a perfect environment for mosquitoes to thrive.
And mosquitoes can be carriers for a range of viruses and diseases, including malaria, chikungunya and West Nile.
