Mosquito Monitoring

    Amber: Medium risk. Some Neston residents may be bitten, especially on still warm evenings. The last few pupae in the Dee pools should be washed out by the high tides on October 28 and 29 so there should be no more 'new' mosquitoes until Spring 2016. However, there are still many 'old' mosquitoes about, the Little Neston trap catching more mosquitoes on the weekend of October 23-26 than any other weekend of the whole summer! Fortunately, not many residents have BBQs in November but any strenuous work or play outdoors will attract biting mosquitoes and they will also enter homes through open windows or doors.

Our mosquito FAQ is viewable here. An outline of our monitoring program is available here.
