Mosquito Forecast

For July 13 - 19, 2024


During the past week two more positive mosquito samples for West Nile virus were reported for our area. This raises the number of positive samples to 29 (at eight different sites), and staff continue to survey the county for vectors of this virus. To date only southern house mosquitoes have been detected with West Nile virus in Chatham County, and aerial missions are planned in areas where the virus has been found. Nuisance mosquito reports (predominantly tiger mosquitoes) are appearing in scattered, isolated areas of the county, and we remind citizens to empty any articles containing water in and around their homes to help control this pesky mosquito. Those residents interested in knowing when aerial missions for controlling adult mosquitoes in their area will take place can register on the Smart911 system, please vitsit:
