The Bay Area’s epic winter rainfall means that a certain pesky, blood-sucking summertime pest is having the time of its short life. (For males, that’s about a week — and that’s if they aren’t swatted sooner!)
“This year you’re going to see some pretty bad mosquito conditions — good conditions if you’re a mosquito, bad conditions if you’re a human being,” said Kaitlyn Trudeau, senior research associate at Climate Central. “Mosquitos are awful. I’m not a fan.”
In the short term, lots of rain and snow means plentiful puddles, marshes, ponds and other opportunities for mosquitoes to lay their eggs and reproduce rapidly.
But there’s a long-term trend playing out, and it has to do with warming temperatures — and it’s bad news for any San Franciscan with bare ankles and plans for an outdoor picnic.
Trudeau and her research colleagues looked closely at mosquito activity trends between 1979 and 2022 at 242 locations across the U.S. They found that rising summertime temperatures are affecting mosquitoes all over the place.
Bloc the bite

Many of our customers in Florida say that they have had success using Bloc against No-see-ums. The coconut oil provides a layer of protection.
What are no-see-ums: Size: No-see-ums, also called biting midges, are small flies (Order Diptera) and adults are only about 1/8 inch in length.
Color: These insects are gray, and their wings are covered with small hairs producing patterns that allow entomologists to identify different species. Larvae may resemble small, whitish worms or caterpillars. As the nickname “no-see-um” implies, they may be difficult to see with the naked eye, especially when they have not fed.
Behavior: Just like mosquitoes the Female No-see-ums bites you for the ferritization of her egg. No-see-ums usually bite during the hours of dusk and dawn and rarely bite during daytime hours. Females primarily blood feed on mammals, but they may also blood feed on other animals such as birds, amphibians and reptiles.
No-see-ums are usually a pest of campers, gardeners, fishermen, hunters, hikers and others who spend time outdoors, especially near water. Immature stages of these insects are aquatic or semi-aquatic and lay their eggs in moist substrates in swamps, salt marshes, and agricultural areas with moist soil high in organic content, such as manure. Habitat preference depends on the species of no-see-um.
To prevent No-see-um bite use Bloc Mosquito Spray.
For relieve from the No-see-ums bite try Bloc After Bite all natural ingredients.
Mosquitoes season in California starts in May and goes through September. Even in October the mosquitoes can be active.
Mosquitoes are small, blood-sucking insects.
Sometimes mosquitoes carry germs like viruses that can spread to a person when a mosquito bites. After feeding on blood, a female mosquito will lay eggs on or near water. The young stages of a mosquito grow in standing water.
The best way to prevent diseases that are spread by mosquitoes is to protect yourself from mosquito bites: use Bloc all natural on exposed skin when going outdoors (especially at dawn and dusk), and wear long sleeves and pants for extra protection. You can also keep mosquitoes from breeding and biting by draining standing water around your home.
