Due to the extreme amount of rain and high humidity, the conditions are absolutely perfect for the potential spread of both West Nile and Chikungunya. Standing water is the absolute worst. Standing water in a ditch could breed millions of mosquitoes. If that same ditch is near your home, don’t forget that most disease carrying mosquitoes maintain an area of approximately 300 yards from where they originally hatch. Thus, if you have a ditch full of standing water near or in your yard, you, your family, and your pets are more than likely going to be targeted by the mosquitoes for their first blood meal.
