New York has a reputation for attracting hordes of mosquitoes, but that doesn’t mean you should leave your backyard.
As the New York Daily News points out, the city has the highest percentage of mosquitoes that bite humans, and the highest rate of the insects that cause Lyme disease.
There’s a variety of ways to deal with the mosquitoes, though.
If you live in Brooklyn or Queens, you might want to consider moving your home to a neighborhood where the mosquitoes are rare or infrequent.
In Brooklyn, you can find plenty of mosquitoes and they’re less likely to bite you.
If you live elsewhere in the city, you may want to stay away from the subway system, which is plagued by mosquitoes.
Finally, if you’re planning a trip to one of the many parks, beaches, and beaches in New York, you should definitely get the Mosquito Management Plan, which lists the mosquito breeding sites in the area, where you can expect the mosquitoes to be most active, and other mosquito traps and nets.
