Delmarva Mosquito Season: Lighter Than Normal, For Now - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Delmarva Mosquito Season: Lighter Than Normal, For Now

Posted: Updated:

DELMARVA - After three birds were reported dead in the Virginia Zoo from Eastern Equine Encephalitis (also known as "Triple-E"), 47 ABC has an update on how the season has been going here on the peninsula. 

So far, it's reportedly been quiet when it comes to mosquitoes.

In Delaware, the Division of Fish and Wildlife says they've had zero positives for triple-E and it's been extremely light in terms of West Nile Virus.

On the Eastern Shores of Maryland and Virginia, no evidence of triple-E, and all cases of West Nile have been in the Western Shores.

Light numbers are attributed to a drier-than-normal season, however, mosquito season usually starts to ramp up from mid-August to early October.
