BROWN COUNTY - Ready or not, it's mosquito season in Wisconsin, and this year is expected to be worse than most.
Although most of the flying pests are harmless, some can carry serious diseases like West Nile. Experts with the Brown County Health Department say it's important to take extra precautions and use common sense.
"Maybe don't go out at dusk to pick your flowers in a tank top and shorts, wear the appropriate clothing.. a little extra deet, appropriately applied, is a very good repellent," said John Paul with the Brown County Health Department.
Brown says it's also important to get rid of standing water around your home.
