Mosquito Forecast

For November 2022

 

With the cooler temperatures that we are experiencing, mosquito problems have began to settle down. Currently there has been a total of 45 positive West Nile virus samples from nine different locations confirmed from the county in 2022. These have primarily been found at locations on the south side of Savannah. Fortunately, the number of vector mosquitoes have been dropping through the month of October to levels not seen since April, and it could be that the end of virus season is at hand. Nuisance mosquito numbers have also been falling at a similar rate, although warm weather can quickly bring dormant mosquitoes out of their overwintering hiding sites. If you begin to notice a build up of mosquitoes in your neighborhood, please contact us directly at Mosquito Control or on-line through our website at Chatham County Mosquito Control . If you would like to receive notifications of aerial adult mosquito missions in your area during 2022, please register on the county’s Smart911 system at: https://www.smart911.com/smart911/ref/reg.action?pa=chathamcounty.

It is easy to help stop mosquitoes from reproducing and spreading disease. Mosquitoes need standing water to breed.
