WAGM talks with Dill about many mosquitoes despite dry weather

WAGM (Channel 8 in Presque Isle) interviewed Jim Dill, pest management specialist with University of Maine Cooperative Extension, about nuisance mosquitoes despite their reproductive activity being slowed by the recent dry weather. Mosquitoes rely on stagnant water sources for breeding. “Some of those breeding sites have certainly dried up. But I can tell you, when you’re out in the woods in some areas where I’ve been, you wouldn’t know that it’s dried up, cause … there’s plenty of mosquitoes out there, and there always are,” Dill said. “And the thing is, it doesn’t take much water.”
