Speaking of mosquitos
Speaking of mosquitos and gadgets to discourage them: There are weather predictions, and now there are mosquito predictions.
If you go to The Weather Channel's Web site at weather.com and click on the tab marked "Health," you can type in your zip code and get a prediction for mosquito activity for the next 24 hours, ranging from "none" to "very high."
There is also plenty of mosquito information, including how to avoid making yourself a "mosquito magnet" and the true risks of West Nile virus.
(There is plenty of information here for a science report or a home-school lesson, too.)
