Mosquito Forecast

For September 30th - October 6th, 2023


As September comes to an end and a change in the weather begins to take hold, we see a definite change in the mosquito populations as well. Although many of our weekly traps continue to catch numerous mosquitoes, the types of mosquitoes are beginning to change. Yet, this change doesn’t necessarily mean an end to our mosquito season. Cooler temperatures in our region may make mosquitoes lazy, but it doesn’t get rid of them, and a number of these cooler weather mosquito species like to bite people. No new West Nile mosquitoes were reported last week, although we are awaiting confirmation of a member of the flavivirus group (which includes West Nile virus) from one of our chicken sentinels. If you would like to receive notifications of aerial adult mosquito missions in your area during the 2023 season, register on the county’s Smart911 system at:

Mosquito Prevention

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!
