Every summer, humans and dogs alike return to the outdoors with smiles on their faces. At long last, the winter chill has faded and frolicking in your natural sanctuary can recommence! If you are the owner of a dog that loves to play in the yard, you have a lot to look forward to this season. Playing with our furry friends is satisfying on so many levels, especially seeing the raw joy they acquire just by running around with abandon. As carefree as these moments should be this summer, there is some reason for concern.
Yes, your yard is generally a safe place to spend time, but some invaders are sure to enter your property this summer. Across the United States, mosquitoes are breeding in truly epic numbers, much to our disappointment. Our climate is gradually warming, and Virginia is becoming a hotspot for massive mosquito populations. While most people feel like mosquitoes are just a nuisance, these insects present dangers that you may not have considered. Although relatively rare in humans in the U.S., mosquito-borne diseases do occur in our region, and our pets are at an elevated risk. As a dog owner, you are probably very aware of the importance (and cost) of heartworm medications, so where do these parasites come from? You guessed it: Mosquitoes.
These insects are already universally hated, but the fact that they can devastate our dogs’ health adds another layer of dislike. From ruining our outdoor living experiences to threatening our health and the health of our loved ones, these insects belong nowhere near our properties. The reality, though, is that mosquitoes are going to be bad this year. According to some rankings created over the past decade, Richmond has ranked as high as #10 in the cities with the worst mosquitoes in the country. If mosquitoes are going to be especially bad in the coming years, that tells you how severe our mosquito problem is. To keep you and your pets defended against mosquitoes and the ailments they cause, consult the professionals for mosquito control.
