FAYETTEVILLE, AR — This week is National Control Awareness Week, educating people about the significance of these tiny insects.

With all of the rain in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley over the past month, mosquitoes have been a lot more prevalent due to the massive amounts of water.

Brad and Stephanie Simon from Mosquito Joe stopped by the KNWA/Fox 24 studios to talk about mosquito prevention and offer a handful of helpful tips anyone can keep in mind to protect their yard, such as the need to drill holes in the bottom of tire swings, garbage and recycling bins that reside outdoors, to prevent rainwater from accumulating.
