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.
