Where are the mosquitos?

Asked July 9, 2020, 12:31 PM EDT

In the past two weeks I have not seen a single mosquito in my yard. Normally they would be thick on the ground at this time of year. In fact, I saw my first mosquito in my house in January. They were here in June. But now they are gone.

Mosquitoes need standing water to lay eggs and develop. The dry conditions have presented suboptimal conditions for mosquito development. There will still be mosquitoes, as they can locate storm drains or other sources of standing water. With the recent scattered thunderstorms in SE Michigan, I expect you'll find them again in the coming weeks.
