It’s that time of year again in Florida…..get ready to swat those pesky mosquitos

By

While most people spend their time trying to avoid pesky, biting mosquitos, it’s Dan Kline’s job to go out and find them. Kline is a research entomologist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Gainesville. In recent weeks he’s been out in Dixie and Levy Counties observing a variety of biting mosquitos and gnats to find out just what these insects feed on before they go after blood. WUFT-FM’s Donna Green-Townsend talked with Kline about the focus of his research.
