Ongoing Rain Will Yield More Mosquitoes in the Coming Weeks

Author: Mosquito Squad of Victoria

As we have discussed at length, standing water is a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. However, our particular situation is quite different and presents many challenges. With the recent onslaught of rain in and around Victoria TX, standing water will remain a problem for the foreseeable future. Add to the amount of standing and stagnated water, the timing will also present challenges as the mosquitoes are much more active and aggressive as they scramble to feed in time to lay their eggs before the temperatures get too low.

According to a recent news article, “…expect the worst of the mosquitoes to be next week when all of the eggs laid this week become adults of a wide range of species, one of which is the largest in the United States”. With the recent copious amounts of precipitation we’ve experienced, it seems that following the “5 T’s” may not be enough within itself. The application of our micro-encapsulated barrier spray solution has a delayed release and is less susceptible to becoming diluted by water than other mosquito control companies in Victoria TX.
