Flooding and Mosquitoes
This article was published originally on 6/16/2008
Personal protection with a repellant that contains DEET is the best choice if you have to be outside during peak mosquito activity hours (usually dusk, although mosquitoes can be active all day). Female Aedes vexans, a floodwater mosquito, usually rest during the day and seek out blood meals at dusk. This species can become prevalent after flooding, but is a species that has minimal involvement in the transmission of West Nile Virus.
