It's summertime, so mosquitoes are back

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -It's that time of year again. Summertime is here and so are the mosquitoes.

Jonesboro resident, Leresa Clark said she was hoping the extreme winter weather this year would have reduced the amount of mosquitoes, but winter weather wasn't much of a help and spring showers have only made it worse for some people.

"I think all this rain made them come a little bit earlier," said resident Michael Witt. "Usually, it's bad mid-June but they've definitely come a lot earlier."

Sometimes bug spray just isn't enough. Some people use unique ways to keep the mosquitoes off of them.

"I heard a rumor that if you put a Bounty sheet in your pocket then they won't mess with you," said Jonesboro resident Patrick Moore. "It kind of worked for me last night."

Another woman shared that she plants lemon grass around her home to keep the mosquitoes from infesting her yard.
