UNDATED, WI (WTAQ) - Northern Wisconsin is getting its normal invasion of mosquitoes – but southern Wisconsin is not.
You would think with all the rain that fell last month, folks in the south would constantly be itching.
However, UW Madison entomologist Phil Pellitteri says the repeated soakings are washing away the stagnant water that mosquitoes need to breed. He says the same water needs to be standing for up to 12 days for the blood-sucking skeeters to breed.
He also said last summer’s drought could still be having an impact.
The National Weather Service said southwest Wisconsin had its wettest June ever.
