Trap map: Where Brandon mosquitoes buzz

The map below shows the number of mosquitoes last spotted in each of the city’s traps. In the summer this count is usually updated every Tuesday, with amounts from the previous Sunday and Monday. This map will be updated as soon as possible after the release of city information

GREEN markers indicate traps with counts up to 100
YELLOW markers indicate traps with counts between 100–500
RED markers indicate traps with counts between 500–1,000
BLUE markers indicate traps with counts between 1,000–2,000
PURPLE markers indicate traps with counts of more than 2,000

If the city-wide average is over 1,000, the city would fog with malathion. A single trap count over 2,000 is enough to immediately trigger fogging.

Latest averages:

Sunday average: 60 • Monday average: 135 • AFA number: 12

The city's AFA number takes weather forecast and mosquito lifecycles into account. On an 18-point scale, the low range is nine or lower. An AFA number of 10–14 is medium. A number that is 15 or higher is the high range. An AFA number that is "high" for two consecutive counts would also trigger fogging.

If looking at this maps makes you itchy, if you want to apply for a buffer zone or if you want to learn more about skeeter stats, visit the city’s own trap-count site.
