Here’s a scenario that might bug a lot of people: If New Jersey has a wet spring this year it could be the perfect storm for mosquitoes, after the state notched one of its warmest winters on record. Most species of these annoying blood-sucking insects need two major things to thrive: Warm weather and wet places to breed. They already had a few months of unseasonably mild temperatures, which could push up the production cycle of certain types of mosquitoes, according to some insect experts… March has turned out to be on the dry side, with very little snow and low amounts of rain. As of March 30, New Jersey had only 2 inches of overall precipitation – rain and melted snow – according to New Jersey State Climatologist David Robinson at Rutgers University.
