What with brief storms drenching the Bay Area this spring, a "perfect ecosystem for raising mosquitoes" has formed due to the stagnant water. According to SF Examiner and SF Appeal, San Francisco should brace itself for a particularly bad mosquito this year. What does this mean? Well, it means you should expect threats of West Nile, ruined BBQs (or, if you're in San Francisco, grilling parties), and sleepless nights. What can you do? For starters, get a screen for your window. Also, we see those newfangled mosquito abatement apps for you phone, but do they work? We have no idea. Mosquitophobes who use them, do let us know.
