EWWW! Mosquitoes!

| No TrackBacks

As the summer heat slogs on and the population of Milwaukee moves outside, those pesky critters known as mosquitoes appear to make our lives miserable. These insects from the Culicidae family are not only annoying, but are also disease vectors. Fortunately, you can learn more about mosquitoes and how to control them through the Badgerlink databases with a valid library card! Simply plug in your search terms in the "Search Databases" box at the top of the screen. Not only will results appear in the center of the screen, but you can limit your search to different databases by clicking on the links on the left hand side of the screen. You can find scientific articles about mosquitoes, or look for hints on how to control them. There are even links to databases to help your children learn about mosquitoes. Of course, if you would rather avoid mosquitoes all together and hang out in the comfort of air conditioning with a good book, check out Andrew Spielman's Mosquito: a natural history of our most persistent and deadly foe.
