(NBC) - It is summer, and that means you need to protect yourself from mosquitoes.
Exterminators say there are ways you can fight back, and that includes a new product that uses garlic to battle the pesky creatures.
Mosquitoes: they bite your skin and suck your blood. And if that's not bad enough, mosquitoes can also cause health problems.
Preston Warford's company, Terminix, is debuting a new weapon in the fight against mosquitoes.
He says it's a spray that's getting good results.
And that works out to a lot of dead mosquitoes. Company officials are calling this mosquito fighter garlic bait. Because the key ingredient is garlic.
And exterminators say, once lured in, mosquitoes are no match for this new product.
And Terminix says, while this product is bad for mosquitoes, it's not bad for the environment.
