YEAR END SUMMARY:
Surveillance mosquitoes samples tested for West Nile Virus was up approx. 50% over 2013 with 1174 tests conducted compared to 600 in 2013.
Because of low water levels on Lake Lowell/Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge mosquito vector mosquito populations dropped off in early June.
Drought conditions/sustained hot weather/night time temperatures in August exceeding 80 degrees F. were contributing factors in amplifying West Nile Virus activity in the Culex species of mosquitoes.
The Middleton area was the center for most West Nile Virus activity. District expenses in the Middleton area were approximately $180,000 (15% of District's Operational Budget)
