With all the immense amounts of rain we received over the past month and a half, one might expect to see the mosquito population and activity booming. This normally holds true, however, with the temperatures soaring into the triple digits on the heat index, we are noticing it’s simply too hot for the mosquitoes. An unfortunate prediction for us in Victoria, Texas is that once temperatures cool down even slightly, we will begin to see the mosquito activity shoot through the roof.
It appears there will be a price to pay for cooler temperatures here in Victoria. Undoubtedly we will receive more rain during the cool down period and mosquitoes that laid eggs a month or two ago (some mosquito eggs can lay dormant for up to 7 years!) will finally have the perfect combination to hatch in record numbers. While this is merely speculation, it is more than likely to occur. With Texas leading the nation in the fight against West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis, it is important to ensure you take the necessary precautions before the mosquito population gets out of control.
