Wet Spring Could Lead to More Mosquitoes in Minnesota

(Undated) — The National Weather Service’s wetter-than-average spring forecast could mean more mosquitoes in Minnesota. Alex Carlson with the Metropolitan Mosquito Control District says we’re going to see a delay to the emergence of mosquitoes this year, just because it’s been so cold and there’s still so much snow cover. He predicts when it starts to really warm up we’re probably going to see more mosquitoes this year than in the past two years.
Rains in June, July and August will be an important indicator for the population prediction.
