South-end skeeters beware: city fogging crews are coming for you tonight.
Adult nuisance mosquito fogging will begin again tonight from 9:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. (weather-permitting) in the southern and western quadrants of the city.
The average mosquito trap count today is 36.
You can see all the areas to be fogged on the city's website.
The graphic below shows the number of adult female nuisance mosquitoes last observed in each of the city’s traps. In the summer this count is usually updated daily.
Trap locations and descriptions are approximate; the city doesn't release exact locations of traps to avoid tampering and vandalism.
If looking at this graphic makes you itchy — or if you want to also monitor adulticiding factor analysis, quadrant averages, or other city skeeter stats — visit the city’s own trap-count site.
UPDATE: Map is displaying archival data during the off-season. Live reporting will return in Spring 2015.
