And for us Arkansans that means several things: holding off on unpacking the scarves and boots, basing your Halloween costume on which equals the least amount of sweating, staying out a little longer on our decks after grilling and eating outside just to experience cooler weather and last but not least, mosquitoes sticking around.

A warm and wet fall means mosquitoes will have an extended invitation to all your backyard campfire parties and football tailgates.
