The midwest is experiencing high mosquito counts due to frequent rain showers, damp soil and pooling water in many cases.
Hundreds of mosquitoes can hatch in very little standing water – in fact, just a water bottle capful of water can produce hundreds of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are thriving right now in this warm and humid weather where they seek shaded, low-light areas and are most commonly seen at dawn and dusk. Listen to what the news had to say about the rise in mosquitoes!
Of course, accompanied by mosquitoes comes the itchy pain of the bite and the possibility of disease. Mosquitoes in Wisconsin were recently found infected with West Nile Virus. Check out our recent blog post for more information.
