Rainy weather attracting more mosquitoes, what you can do to avoid them


The wet weather we’ve experienced over the last week has brought out some unwanted insects. 

There are typically more mosquitoes outside after a rainy day because they have more water sources.

They’re attracted to standing water because that is where mosquitoes lay eggs. 

To avoid mosquitoes in your yard, make sure there is no standing water. 

They also tend to come out more in the evening and at night when the sun goes down. 

Mosquitoes samples taken from all Western Massachusetts counties have tested positive for West Nile Virus.
