In Alaska, during mid-to late-June, there is no escape from the buzzing mosquitoes and painful bites.
According to Kenai Peninsula experts, the issue cannot be avoided.
Janice Chumley, with the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service’s Integrated Pest Management, said the number of mosquitoes outside is not strange for this time of year.
“It is not abnormal at all,” Chumley said. “This is just a regular occurrence of mosquitoes.”
