Growing mosquito population after heavy rains reported by McHenry County

Heavy rains have contributed to a growing nuisance mosquito population around McHenry County, according to the McHenry County Department of Health.

“A lot of the mosquitoes we’re seeing now are nuisance mosquitoes from all the heavy rains,” health department spokeswoman Keri Zaleski said.

The county does not track the number of nuisance mosquitoes, which do not carry human disease. The West Nile virus has been reported in about a dozen traps this summer, Zaleski said.

“We have mosquito traps located throughout the county,” Zaleski said.
