LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Most people are probably looking forward to warm weather, but not some of the things that come with it, like mosquitos.

The La Crosse County Health Department is out trying to use chemicals to control the mosquito population.

Officials say with all the rain we've had this year, there was a huge hatch of mosquitos.

More than just being pests, some mosquitos can carry disease. Dave Geske, vector control agent for the health department, says residents can help cut down on the population.

"Take a look around your own homes and neighborhoods too see if there are containers, tires, boats that hold water, and either address them, or let us know and we'll address it, but it's really important this time of year," Geske says.

Any container that can hold water for over a week is a good breeding ground for mosquitos. Residents can check things like tires, buckets and bird baths.
