Louisiana is holding a state wide mosquito survey. Shannon Rider of the Ouachita Parish Mosquito Abatement District says “the survey is being held to determine if Aedes Aegypti (which is a known vector of the Zika and other viruses) has spread throughout the state.” The Aedes Aegypti is only known to have been in the Greater New Orleans Region.

If the weather stays the same and the ground doesn’t soak up the water then there can be an expected increase in mosquitos.
