Since mosquito activity is so closely linked to temperature, the actual mosquito season can vary from one region to another — and even from one year to the next. As you might expect, the warmer the climate, the earlier the mosquito season starts and the longer it’s likely to last.
Here on Edisto Island, mosquitoes are such a cause for concern the local Accuweather reports the daily mosquito activity and Zika risk from mosquitoes.
The first frost is usually a reliable sign of the end of mosquito season. However, it’s possible that some hibernating mosquitoes will emerge during unexpected warm spells (Indian Summers), during winter, only to return to their hiding places when the temperature drops. Our temperate to subtropical climate means mosquitoes can typically thrive well into the autumn and our season can begin as early as February. In years past, the Edisto Island mosquito season has even been known to last throughout the year.
Yes, though each species of mosquito may prefer a slightly different habitat, almost all kinds of still or slow-moving water will be attractive to at least some kind of mosquito these include the low-lying marshes and abundant wetlands prevalent on Edisto Island. Mosquito populations can escalate quickly well into the late fall unless action is taken to discourage them.
Just as we pointed out in our blog story The Secret to Keeping Your Island Home Mosquito Free is Mosquito Squad, Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance, they can also transmit a host of mosquito-borne illness to humans and pets. Among these are West Nile, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Lacrosse Encephalitis and dog/cat heartworm.
