Community Update:

  • CV Mosquito is urging the residents of ORI to inspect their properties regularly for stagnant water sources. This is important as the temperatures rise in the Spring, as it helps to prevent mosquito breeding. Let's work together to keep these pesky insects away from ORI this year, now that we're in 2024.

  • It's important to note that the number of mosquitoes in your RV community can be affected by temperature, wind, and weather conditions. Mosquitoes are cold-blooded creatures and thrive in temperatures around 80°F. However, they become sluggish and unable to operate below 50°F.

General information

mosquito
  • Mosquito abundance increases by two significant factors: temperature and the presence of water.
  • As the temperature rises during the summer, mosquito activity will also increase until the peak of the hot season if they can find a place to lay their eggs. For example:
  • Over-watering grass so excess water flows into the street. Make sure you're sprinklers are not causing urban drool!
  • Saucers under outdoor plants. Mosquitoes can breed in a tablespoon of water. Plant saucers are the leading breeding cause for invasive mosquito Aedes aegypti.

 

Mosquito control requires everyone's participation. Residents of Outdoor Resort Indio are advised to frequently check their properties for stagnant water sources and eliminate them immediately to prevent mosquito breeding.

  • Life Cycle – about a week. The life cycle of a mosquito from egg to adult can be completed in less than a week, depending on water temperature and the mosquito species. Eggs deposited on water surfaces usually hatch within a day or so, while those deposited in soil can hatch months or even years later, depending on water availability. On average, the female usually deposits from 100 to 150 eggs at a time. Over the life course, the female mosquito may deposit three to four batches of eggs.
