West Des Moines Starts Seasonal Fight Against Mosquitoes
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- It's a Memorial Day weekend that feels more like the Fourth of July. The heat and humidity, mixed with some recent rain, is making it a perfect time for mosquitoes. “Well it's just so surprising how fast they came up a couple of weeks ago. We didn't seem to have that much rain, and suddenly we're covered with mosquitoes. I had so many bug bites on my legs last week after standing out in the yard,” said West Des Moines resident Suzanne Graham.
