How is the mosquito situation so far this spring/summer? It was bad in Austin when I was there recently. Probably all the rain.

Are the mosquitoes picking people up and flying away with them yet?

Not that I've heard. We surmise, with all the recent rain, the mosquitoes will be holding CC for hostage.

CC will then hire Martha Stewart as a spokesperson who will report,

"It's a Good Thing."

Thx, Rust. I'm very surprised but glad to hear they are not a problem yet this year.

Bad for a few weeks after the big rain, much better now. Everyone forgot no mosquitos was a benefit of a drought.

Back visiting friends near TAMUCC and the mosquitoes are horrific. We don't walk the dogs or even go to the garbage dumpster without spraying ourselves with DEET. The dog is covered with at least a dozen mosquitoes in just a few minutes outside. And I've seen a lot more ant hills around too.

This is not a good thing:

KRISTV.com | Continuous News Coverage | Corpus Christi - Battling mosquitoes with limited supplies

One would have thought, during a El Niño, or Southern Oscillation (ENSO) year, the city would have implemented more planning and preparedness measures.

Lady friend in CC reported the increase in frogs brought snakes to her neighborhood on the southside. Said HEB is running out of Yard Guard and it's oppressively hot and humid.

I only have 1 good thing to say about the mosquitos this year, they are big enough to put on a hook for bait

Mosquitoes here, while a nuisance, are not something to seriously worry about. We don't have dengue, yellow fever, or malaria. West Nile infection is subclinical for the overwhelming majority of people, and hasn't affected anyone in Nueces recently.
Snakes that eat frogs and toads aren't dangerous to us and shouldn't be feared.
Ants can be dangerous though, for those allergic.

The big concern is none of the above. The big concern is chikungunya virus!

Water moccasins, Cottonmouths feed primarily on fish, frogs, mice and rats! Copperheads eat frogs, massasauga rattlesnakes eat toads, Padre Island is full of them.


I figure you can Google that for yourself.
