Mosquito Season: Preventing Eastern Equine Encephalitis

Apr 30, 2020

Last year mosquitos tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis, or EEE, in multiple towns across the Cape and South Coast. There were a dozen reported cases of human infections across the state and at least three people died. What are we expecting this year, how can we reduce mosquito populations, and could climate change bring other mosquito borne disease like dengue fever or malaria to our region? Joining us to answer those questions is Gabi Sakolsky, Entomologist and Superintendent of Cape Cod Mosquito Control.
