Just because we’ve had an extended winter this spring, doesn’t mean we’ll be bug-free when warmer weather does finally roll around.
For every adorable family with a sled at sunset there is one Minnesotan who is winter-weary.
The number of Minnesotans getting sick this summer from the West Nile Virus is growing.
We probably don’t even have to remind you, but we are in peak mosquito season. While some seem almost immune to bites, others claim to be magnets for mosquitoes.
This year’s mosquito population is growing because of all the rainfall. But the same can’t be said for potential West Nile virus cases, even though that too depends on weather.
Mosquitoes: there are millions of them, they’re a nuisance, and so is their bite which makes you itch and scratch your skin like crazy. So why does the mosquito population in Minnesota seems to be pretty slim this year?
Haven’t seen any annoying, blood-sucking pests in the air yet? That’s because we’re a little behind this year, according to Mike McLean at the Metropolitan Mosquito Control District.
The combination of warm temps and light winds allowed the Metro Mosquito Control choppers to begin their annual assault on summer’s main pest.
You’d think, with all the rain we’ve had in June, the mosquito population would be larger than normal.
