Heavy Rain Plus Hot Weather Equals Mosquitoes

With the large amount of rainfall this year combined with the high temperatures is perfect weather for mosquitos. Standing water is ideal for breeding spots. A female mosquito can lay 100-200 eggs in a bottle cap of water. Mosquitos are also dangerous for transmitting viruses. The warmer the weather gets, the more efficiently mosquitoes transmit the virus like the Zika Virus – mosquito borne disease.

Did you know?

  • Females can lay eggs in the fall, the larva will lie dormant until weather warms up.
  • Only female mosquitos bite.
  • The majority of mosquitos are active during dusk time.
