Brian Foy says: “Hot summers without drought are always important for breeding the most mosquitoes, but rainfall can also confound issues depending on its variability and intensity,” “Large deluge storms can flush out mosquito larvae that were previously developing happily in ponds and filled ditches”
Brian Foy says: “Mosquito species certainly can become ‘invasive’ and colonize new habitats,” “An example of this is Aedes albopictus that has invaded the southeastern U.S. and many other subtropical areas around the globe. It is a vector of Zika virus, chikungunya virus, and dengue viruses that are currently causing pandemics (widespread illness) in humans. Human movement (think cars, planes, and trains) has probably transferred C. tarsalis to the eastern United States innumerable times over the last hundred-plus years, but it has never taken hold, possibly because it isn’t able to adapt to that habitat”
Brian Foy says: “Susceptible hatchlings that can’t fly have poor defensive behavior against biting mosquitoes,” “These individuals often develop high viremia (virus levels in the blood) because they have no immunity”
Brian Foy says: “Disease from WNV is especially concentrated in the Great Plains, mostly due to the very efficient C. tarsalis vector, along with a limited diversity of bird species that it likes to bite,”
Brian Foy says: “Larvae of many mosquito species in the mountains and northern states grow in melting snow pools in the spring, can tolerate being frozen for a bit, and emerge as adults in early to middle summer,” “On the Plains, Culex tarsalis develops in spring rain puddles, but doesn’t emerge in large numbers until around late June, depending on the temperature”
Brian Foy says: “Some scientists are explaining this trend by suggesting summer warming linked to climate change, which could directly influence mosquito species abundance,”
Brian Foy says: “The mosquito vectors and the host species they bite are what usually define the endemic regions of all arboviruses,” “WEE in the USA is mostly transmitted by C. tarsalis mosquitoes limited to the states west of the Mississippi River, where they proliferate on the Great Plains”
Brian Foy says: “WNV is not just transmitted by one type of mosquito,”
These pests can transmit a variety of dangerous pathogens, depending on certain factors in your region. We’re all too familiar with the irritating sound of a tiny buzzing mosquito planning an approach for landing and a bloodmeal. This arthropod is not only annoying but also dangerous; in fact, it could be one of the world’s most lethal creatures....
