Mosquito season has started early this year in Luzerne County. The consistent rain throughout the winter/early spring has created an overabundance of standing water, supporting heavy mosquito larvae populations. The recent warm weather has sped up the mosquitos’ life cycle and adult mosquitos are now starting to emerge. Please remember to keep yourself and others safe by repairing screens, eliminating standing water, and wearing proper insect repellent when outside! If you would like to report a mosquito complaint, please contact Luzerne County’s Mosquito Disease Control program at 570-674-7991 ext. 6 or send emails to
