When you think of fall you don’t normally think of an increased and more aggressive mosquito population. You’re probably thinking of football, cooler days and nights, and Halloween. But a recent news article suggests that not only will we be facing a more aggressive mosquito population this fall, but we way see an increase in the number of West Nile virus cases.
While you may have gotten into your comfort zone outdoors and are not worrying about being bitten by annoying, flying insects, we may be in for the worst part of the mosquito season here in Victoria. According to the article by KEYE TV, “We’re really just heading into our peak West Nile season now,” said Zettel Nalen. With forecasts for a rainy October, we may very well see high mosquito levels all throughout fall.
Just as logic would dictate, the more mosquitoes that are out and biting people, the more likely it is that some of those mosquitoes are infected with West Nile virus.
