At my house in Montana, the mosquitos are normally terrible until the city sprays. This year, there are virtually no mosquitos - maybe seen 2-3 all summer. Others have commented on it as well in neighboring communities. Wondering how they are where you are. Considering a link between the chinese coronavirus and the lack of mosquitos. What say you?

More likely it's due to warmer weather or a drier winter last year.

Not too bad here this summer. Less than a normal year

so dry and hot this spring and eraly summer , when it did rain the skeeters got bad for a little while

I bet we didn't get an inch of rain most of june

I was camping from the 5th to the 19th and one little passing rain in all that time the asphalt wasn't even wet 30 minutes later and it never even rained where the tent was

it was 90 every day and the river level was dropping daily where you could take the boat a week later you could not


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

We had none until after the heavy rains in mid-July Since then our August and even yet today have been the worst concentration of mosquitos in my life time. Need to wear a hoodie for any outdoor activities. Some have been spraying their yards with products that seem to be working pretty good. Gardens have been really bad. We need more bats and night hawks.

Very few, till late summer rains bumped up the populations. They can be brutal during Teal season!

This year has been the most mosquito free summer I have ever encountered. I may have been bitten a couple times.Even late nights on my deck are mosquito free.
