Mosquito Forecast

For April 13-19, 2024

 

Mosquito activity this past week has not shown a significant increase over the preceding week. However, windy conditions during the latter part of the week has probably had a lot to do with the number of mosquitoes collected. The rainfall that occurred throughout Thursday (the 11th) will likely produce favorable conditions at wetlands used by several of our floodwater mosquito species as larval habitat. Staff will keep a close eye on such sites, and treat these as needed. 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: https://www.smart911.com/smart911/ref/reg.action?pa=chathamcounty.
