While they can be a nuisance when enjoying outdoor activities, mosquitoes can also spread many illnesses that negatively impact people in Tennessee with horrible diseases such as West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, and Zika virus.
Many mosquitos are most active at dusk and at dawn. Be more vigilant during outdoor activities at these times. Windy conditions make it difficult for mosquitoes to move around and locate their prey. People give off carbon dioxide which attracts mosquitoes. Fans can be helpful in deterring mosquitoes. Wearing light-colored, loose fitting clothes (long pants and sleeves) can help protect you when you are outside in areas where mosquitoes are found. Mosquitoes can bite through tight fitting clothes.
