When we went camping recently, my wife got chewed up by mosquitoes. They seemed to leave me alone. Guess she is sweeter than me! The Larimer County Department of Health and Environment says now is a good time to pack mosquito repellent into your backpacks and stock up your supply at home. The good news is that the numbers of Culex mosquitoes, the ones that carry West Nile virus, are still very small.
