Number of Aedes mosquitoes continues to increase
MOSQUITO TRAP DATA FROM SGVMVCD
July 6 to 10
Happy Monday! We hope you've been staying cool in this scorching summer heat. If not, enjoy some freshly caught data by our amazing Surveillance Department!
Last week's (July 6 to 10) observed mosquito trap counts were 7% lower than the three year average -- Great job San Gabriel Valley! Keep at it with your weekly Tip, Toss, Protect; and be sure to always apply sunscreen before repellent (if you're not interested in being a delicious mosquito buffet, that is).
On a more serious note, the number of Aedes mosquitoes caught in these traps were higher than previous weeks -- and we can expect the numbers to increase.
Aedes mosquito populations are increasing each week
So, what else can SGV do to keep our homes safe from these vectors and the diseases they carry?
