When will the first freeze of the season hit helping slow the spread of EEE?
Mosquitoes are cold-blooded and cold air from winter will slow them down and decrease their activity. The first frost of the season will help put them into a deep-sleep or hibernation. But a longer-lasting, harder-hitting freeze is needed to really stop them.
The first freeze typically occurs in Litchfield County where the average freeze is October 3rd. The average first freeze is occurs on average around October 13. and lastly along the shoreline where the average first freeze doesn’t occur until early November.
