September 14 to 18
Happy fall, SGV! We don't know about you, but we're ready for hot cider, pumpkins, and knit sweaters. In fact, we've been ready.

According to last week's (September 14-18) trap report, mosquito numbers were 6% higher compared to the same week in 2019.
Even as temperatures cool, mosquito appetites persist through to the winter!
