Mayor Gitz at an online forum at the Journal Standard passed the buck on the mosquito problem. He said it is the mosquito district’s problem. Where does he live? Check out the Asian tiger mosquito which is now prevalent in Illinois. They were introduced from Asia in imported tires in the 1980’s and have been called “ferocious little biters.” They eat (bite you) day and night, and like most mosquitoes are capable of transmitting serious diseases.
