Mosquito invasion possibly won't end this week with soggy forecast

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - Starting Monday night, rain is either likely or possible all week in Wisconsin -- and that's horrible news if you've been scratching a lot.

Mosquito bites seem to be at their worst in years throughout the Badger State, due mainly to a short spring and a wet start to the summer season.

Dave Geske of the La Crosse Health Department says there's a lot of standing water every time in rains. Those places are prime breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Geske tells WKBT-TV that the La Crosse County health agency has used more chemicals to control mosquitoes this month than it did for all of last year. He said officials had no choice but to address the matter, because if they don't, it will be miserable for the next few weeks.
