Mosquitoes? Already?

Yes they are here. I can’t believe it. We have received numerous phone calls telling us they are seeing mosquitoes here in Southwest Michigan in March!

While this 70 degree weather is wonderful, it has been warm enough (long enough) for the larva to start hatching. Unless we see multiple days below freezing they are here for the summer. Which means their multiplication will start early. Have you seen the math?

1 mosquito can lay 300 eggs. If half are female, in 1 week, the 150 becomes 45,300, which another week later becomes 6,795,000 and then in 1 more week (4th generation) becomes 1,319,250,000 mosquitos. Yes that is one month’s time there are a billion mosquitos from 1. And this year we are starting early….
