LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - They're annoying, aggressive and know how to ruin a beautiful spring day. What are they? Mosquitoes. But there aren't as many flying around as you might think.
MSU Professor and Insect Researcher Dr. Ned Walker says there are slightly more than last year, but not by much.
"Well this year, we've had this drawn out spring. It's resulted in a lot of mosquitoes die off before they hatched into the adult stage and then the really heavy rains resulted in a lot of wash out," said Walker.
Walker says so far the risk of getting West Nile from these mosquitoes shouldn't be a concern. "Right now, here in the middle of May, mosquitoes that are biting are not carrying the West Nile Virus."
The Michigan Department of Community Health [MDCH] tells 6 News mosquitoes that carry West Nile thrive in hot and dry weather. Something we haven't seen yet this year.
"We're definitely keeping an eye on it. We had 17 fatalities associated with West Nile last year and that's simply too many," said Angela Minicuci, the spokesperson for MDCH.
