Benton County Mosquito Control Holds Annual Tire Drive
Well, I got my first mosquito bite of the year on Saturday, before the big wind storm hit. Mosquito bites do not do me well! I am not just talking about the itching either. For some reason, my mosquito bites blister up and just become kind of nasty for a week or so. They eventually go away but mosquito bites are not my favorite thing. I got one on my face a few years ago and it was so bad that I'm sure I looked like a meth-head. Mosquito bites didn't always do me this way, only in the last 5 or 6 years for some reason. That's why I wanted to spread the word on this event coming up on April 17th, sponsored by Benton County Mosquito Control. They're doing a tire drive and they want your old tires. They say that one female mosquito can produce thousands of eggs in a single tire. They only do this once a year, and it's free. Here's a chance to do some Spring cleaning and help keep your yard mosquito-free. If your yard is mosquito-free, that helps my yard stay mosquito free! You can bring up to 20 tires and they must be rimless. Sorry, they won't accept giant tractor tires lol. You can drop off your used tires at 4951 W. Van Giesen in West Richland on April 17th.
