Emergency Management, Mosquitoes

Dennis Hart interviewed Keith Morgan from Story County Emergency Management about the emergency situations that Central Iowa has faced this summer, including tornadoes and flooding. He also reminded us of what we should do and have on hand to be ready for various emergencies. Gale Seiler interviewed Ryan Smith, a professor in the Department of Entomology at ISU. Dr. Smith discussed mosquitoes in Iowa and the diseases that they can transmit. By understanding the mosquito life cycle and as well as precautions to take, we can keep ourselves in good health while enjoying the outdoors in summer.
