Well, I got my first mosquito bite of the year on Saturday, before the big wind storm hit. Mosquito bites do not do me well! I am not just talking about the itching either. For some reason, my mosquito bites blister up and just become kind of nasty for a week or so. They eventually go away but mosquito bites are not my favorite thing. I got one on my face a few years ago and it was so bad that I'm sure I looked like a meth-head. Mosquito bites didn't always do me this way, only in the last 5 or 6 years for some reason. That's why I wanted to spread the word on this event coming up on April 17th, sponsored by Benton County Mosquito Control. They're doing a tire drive and they want your old tires. They say that one female mosquito can produce thousands of eggs in a single tire. They only do this once a year, and it's free. Here's a chance to do some Spring cleaning and help keep your yard mosquito-free. If your yard is mosquito-free, that helps my yard stay mosquito free! You can bring up to 20 tires and they must be rimless. Sorry, they won't accept giant tractor tires lol. You can drop off your used tires at 4951 W. Van Giesen in West Richland on April 17th. For all the details, visit the Benton County Mosquito Control Tire Drive Facebook page HERE.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
