Current Activity

Our mosquito traps occasionally capture low numbers of Culex tarsalis mosquitoes, the main transmitter of West Nile virus (Wnv) locally. This species is typically found in late July and early August, particularly following hot, dry conditions.

Protect Yourself

When enjoying the outdoors, wear bug repellent, pants and long-sleeved shirts. Loose-fitting and light-coloured clothing also helps prevent mosquito bites. It's also recommended that homeowners remove standing water on their properties to reduce potential development sites for mosquitoes.
