Green Alert Level

Low risk.  The high tides in mid-October filled all the pools and washed remaining larvae out and no new adults will develop over the winter.  There are a few mosquitoes around, many of which will live until next spring so occasional bites may result.  The forecasts have been green for the whole of 2016 which is most unusual and has occurred largely due to the very dry summer which dried out all the pools where the mosquitoes breed and the relatively low high tides in August and September so many eggs were not covered with salt water and did not hatch.  The forecast will start again in Spring 2017.

Please use the on-line form if you get any bites so we can improve the forecast.
