During the winter, mosquitoes are the last thing people in Southern California think about. Does this mean that vector control go into hibernation until spring?
As we see in this video, vector control still need to stay on top of mosquitoes throughout winter. In the underground storm drains, millions of mosquitoes hunker down from the cold. In addition, SoCal occasionally experiences unusually warm temperatures in the winter and early spring. It doesn’t end there either; Many water sources exist in people’s own yards and patios. A bottle cap of water sitting in a winter heat wave could be a potential breeding source for mosquitoes.
