Helena MT: Mosquitos and Standing Water Equals Disaster (That Goes for Other Towns Too)


The following article concentrates on Helena MT, but really anywhere there is standing water and a higher amount than usual breeds a myriad of problems as far as pesky mosquitos are concerned. And the more it rains in June (whether there is standing water or not) still creates the right atmosphere for the dreaded little creatures. Montana desperately needs the rain though so like it or not we must deal with these pests.

HELENA – “With the recent rain storms the Helena area has been receiving, there’s a potential for more mosquitoes than there’s been in the past few years.

In some cases, the storms have created standing pools of water, prime habitat for mosquito larvae.

John Semple — who is a contractor hired to exterminate mosquitoes and larvae within Lewis & Clark County — says that he’s surveying locations twice as often due to the amount of standing water.”
