Also known as the Northern House Mosquito. These mosquitoes like to lay their eggs in containers holding water or stagnant water ponds. These mosquitoes are known for transmitting West Nile Virus.
Buckets like these can cause a huge problem for abatement districts because they are harder to find and can breed a large amount of disease-borne mosquitoes
This is what you would typically find in a forest preserve. Sites like these are inspected on a regular basis and are a main breeding ground for floodwater mosquitoes.
Commonly found in residential areas, these roadside ditches can breed both disease-borne mosquitoes as well as floodwater mosquitoes. These sources are also inspected on a regular basis.
Using new technology has aided our efforts to control the mosquito population in our district. With these new Mesa 2 tablets, we are able to treat more sources and retain more data from our field operators. With this data we are able to find more trends in treatments, but also target areas where we are finding an abundance of mosquitoes.
