Mosquitoes in Fall: Why You Need to Stay Vigilant

While it might seem like the summer weather will come to a natural close soon, we still have several months until mosquitoes fully vacate our region. The big plus of having a long outdoor living season is always something to look forward to, but mosquitoes don’t vanish as soon as the leaves begin to turn. The Virginia weather remains warm enough for mosquitoes to survive even through October, meaning you need to stay aware of the threats these creatures pose to your health and outdoor living experience. Yes, we deal with mosquitoes every year, but they continue to become more threatening every summer due to their swelling numbers and the diseases they can carry.

Why your mosquito control company is more important than ever

Although we don’t typically associate mosquitoes with disease in our region, this could change in the future as our climate continues to warm and mosquitoes that tend to carry disease feel more at home here. For example, diseases like West Nile virus could gain a foothold in our region, making our part of the world far less safe during the summer months. While such a reality could be a little down the road, there is no need to take the risk with mosquitoes. At the very least, defending against their painful, itchy bites is a fantastic idea to keep your outdoor living enjoyment high. Few things are quite as annoying as a group of mosquitoes harassing you, your family, and your guests for blood. Perhaps the most ironic part of losing blood to these insects is the fact that it will be used to raise another generation of mosquitoes on your property. Unfortunately, you can expect these biters to persist near your outdoor living space for months to come, highlighting the importance of mosquito control.
