Did Freeze Kill The Mosquitos
Q: Is there any chance the Christmas freeze killed enough mosquitoes or fire ants to make a difference this summer?
A: Nope. Cold weather may kill a high percentage of insects in an area but some always survive. With less competition from their species, these survivors become supercharged reproduction machines. More female mosquitoes and more fire ant queens appear. They lay eggs at a furious pace to replace the workers that were frozen. You will not see much difference in the number of insects this coming summer.
