We're hard pressed to find any in North Troy right now. I think Irene took what few we may have had and blown them clear into to Labrador. A silver lining.

Lately, I needed bug spray just to be outside!

I got about 2 dozen bites in Goshen yesterday while scouting some woods...and it wasn't a spot I'd expect many (fairly dry spot).

Just saw a mosquito again!

Got a mosquito in the house! Didn't notice any until one was hovering in front of my monitor. Then I swatted it on the CRT and had to clean the CRT!

It had been a great mosquito-almost-free year until...........
"Besides the debris and memories left by Hurricane Irene, residents now have to live with an over population of pesky mosquitoes.
In the wake of Irene, mosquitoes thrive | mosquitoes, irene, heath - IRENE - ENCToday (http://www.enctoday.com/articles/mosquitoes-100386-nbsj-irene-heath.html - broken link)

From an article in neighboring states.......
"West Nile virus has been found in traps in 30 Connecticut towns thus far, and there have been three cases of the illness in the state this summer.
In Massachusetts, high levels of West Nile-positive mosquitoes caught in traps and the death of an elderly resident from EEE have led some towns there to curtail sports and other outdoor activities after 4 p.m. There has been one case of West Nile illness in Massachusetts this year."

Gnats are typical all year around on the walking path in Springfield.

Getting a gnat in your face when biking is common.

OP, my friend, I haven't seen one darn mosquito since moving here 9 years ago UNTIL post Irene! Every time I pee the puppy I am swarmed with them like Houston! Absolutely horrible and the flies are doubled to boot! I think it's a fluke and won't have the problem again!

IIRC, the West Nile virus was already found in Rutland County mosquitoes.


EEE is worse than West Nile and is usually NOT found in Vermont. The more rain, the worse EEE is!


The worst EEE reports occurred during real rainy years, especially 2006!

Of New England states, EEE is the most common in eastern Massachusetts, which typically has far more rain than Vermont.
