StarStarStarStarMosquito alert!
08/02/2016 to 11/30/2016
West Nile Virus was detected in mosquitos captured in a pool of water near Woods Hole in July of 2016. Mosquitos are able to breed in puddles and containers or small objects that collect rain water. Please be advised that residents should perform regular inspections of outdoor areas under their control to eliminate all standing water. This includes removing water from toys, tools, equipment and other objects that may catch rain water and taking actions to prevent water from collecting. Mosquitos are able to breed in these small pools of water until the winter.
