Mosquito Forecast

For June 15 - 21, 2024


Aerial treatments conducted in the Pooler and Port Wentworth last week have undoubtedly helped lower overall adult mosquito numbers in the county. We still have not detected any mosquito borne virus from our locally caught mosquitoes and the only report of mosquito borne virus in the state has been from a series of mosquitoes collected well to our south in Lowndes County. We will continue to monitor mosquito numbers and check locally collected mosquitoes for virus as we move into summer and the peak of our mosquito season. 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:

It is easy to help stop mosquitoes from reproducing and spreading disease. Mosquitoes need standing water to breed.
Keep all containers around your home free from standing water!
