Thankfully the height of mosquito season is behind us, but don’t let
your guard down just yet. Mosquitoes can survive some chilly
temperatures and the population only significantly drops in an area
after it is cold enough for frost.
warmer regions of the country, it is still possible this late
in the year to contract mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile
virus and EEE. Also, even in the colder months, it is good
practice to continue emptying standing areas of water that can
contain mosquito eggs and larvae. Every effort helps when it comes
to controlling the mosquito population.
