    Yeah, they are pretty bad already. Probably due to all the raining it has been doing.

    Yes the mosquitoes are bad here on Parkview ave. Some people behind us have tires everywhere in their yard and I saw a lady trying to spray something in them, maybe to kill them. A lot of areas in that yard are growing mosquitoes

      Might be a wise choice to call down to the Mosquito Abatement office and let them know. They can investigate or set traps. You can do that you know. You pay for it already so why not ask? It is totally worth it.
