This week we talk with the owner of a business that breeds and releases mosquitos in their customers' yards. That might sound ludicrous, but the company MosquitoMate was recently celebrated by the U.S. Department of Commerce for their innovative approach to pest control.

Our guest on the Business Side this week is Dr. Stephen Dobson, an Entomologist at the University of Kentucky. He founded the Lexington-based MosquitoMate along with his wife and Operations Director Karen Dobson.
