For Februaru 2023

 

As was the case for January, persistent cool weather has limited mosquito activity in our area. Trap counts at the end of January remained low, and the bulk of the mosquitoes collected do not normally represent a nuisance problem for residents, preferring to feed on birds and other forms of wildlife including outdoor pets. Thus, it is important to remember to protect dogs from heartworms, especially as the weather warms and mosquitoes that carry this parasite becoming more common. Remember to contact us at Mosquito Control by either phone or on-line through our website at Chatham County Mosquito Control should mosquitoes become a problem in your area of the county.
