asian tiger mosquito treatment in pasadena, california

This is the very first time since the Asian tiger mosquito was identified in the area in 2011 that officials will be targeting the mosquito’s larvae.
They will continue to target adult mosquitoes when they feel it’s warranted but they feel they should also use other methods to try to get the population down.
The main concern is this is a mosquito that is not native to Southern California and it shouldn’t be there !

The area slated for treatment covers about 340 acres and spans an 11-square-mile area

Gallinipper : a huge mosquito with painful bite comes back to florida

Last summer, the Tropical Storm Debby hit Florida and the torrential waters spread a multitude of mosquitoes eggs like, for example, the gallinipper.
This mosquito is native to florida and is a HUGE mosquito (6-7 mm), and has a painful bite…
Next summer, if it rains a lot, this mosquito could come back because Debby brought a good breeding ground for the gallinipper !
