As of November 1, 2019, there have been 215 dead birds reported
in San Mateo County. Of those, 53 have been suitable for testing
and all 53 have tested negative for West Nile virus (WNV). No
mosquito pools or sentinel chickens have tested positive for West
Nile virus in San Mateo County in 2019.
When the temperatures start to change and the nights become
colder, you may begin to notice six-legged visitors coming inside
your home. As we shutter our doors and windows to keep out the
cold, the humidity rises indoors. This elevated humidity
can attract insects and arthropods, including tiny insects called
Collembola, or springtails.
