Mosquito Risk Not Over Yet In New Bedford

Mosquitoes carrying the potentially deadly Triple E and West Nile viruses have again been found in the far north end of New Bedford.   The Bristol County Mosquito Control program wrapped-up its spraying for the season last month, as the cooler night temperatures of October make the spraying less effective.

The mayor’s office says the risk of mosquito-borne illness extends until the first hard frost.   That killing frost is usually defined as two consecutive hours of temperatures below 28 degrees.    Until that happens, we should take precautions, including wearing long pants and long-sleeved clothing and mosquito repellent.
