Mosquito season has arrived | Here’s what you need to know

The best way to prepare is to clean up your yard, dispose of any lingering and open water, and use insect repellent.

SAN ANTONIO — Living here in South Texas, we all know how big the mosquitos can get. While mosquitos are around the entire year, there are some months where the population of mosquitos grow.

Mosquitos thrive on heavy rain, heat and humidity. Two seasons in particular provide that.

From spring to summer, the number of mosquitos climb. Especially from late Spring into Summer.

Keep in mind, San Antonio observed a surplus in rainfall from March through May. This increase has resulted in more mosquitos compared to normal.

It’s typically in July and August where the trend becomes high to extreme on the mosquito populations because of the stagnant waters and abnormal heat.

The more rain we see in spring and early summer, the higher the mosquito counts are.

It’s not until November that we see a significant fall in mosquito populations.

If you’re experiencing problems with mosquitos, Bexar county has an abatement program you can report to for any increased activity. Dedicated crews will respond and treat the area if warranted.
