Health officials have not found any mosquitos infected with West Nile this year in Manitoba. That’s the good news. So I hope some of the histeria surrounding this new form of flew will subside.
On the other hand the count for the caught: Culex tarsalis is slightly on the rise. Culex tarsalis ist the type of mosquito that can potentially carry the West Nile parasite and then transmit it to humans. But that’s not really news to Manitobans. We could have told you that the mosquito count is up. We don’t need rocket scientists with complicated modern equipment to tell us that.
Mosquito season here and that’s that.
