Mosquito Forecast

For the month of March 2023


The end of February saw a dramatic rise in mosquito numbers which has continued into the first few days of March. In fact, the monthly total for February was nearly twice as high for the same period as last year. However, mosquito numbers during this time of year fluctuate greatly with daily temperatures, so it is difficult to predict whether this trend will continue for an extended period of time. Aerial missions conducted on the west side of the county should help reduce the impact of mosquitoes associated with flooding conditions along the Ogeechee and Little Ogeechee rivers. Remember to contact us at Mosquito Control by either phone or on-line through our website at Chatham County Mosquito Control should mosquitoes become a problem in your area of the county. Also, 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:
