The Party’s Over Folks - It Is Mosquito Season in Virginia
You’ve been pretty upbeat lately, haven’t you. The winter chills have subsided for the most part. True, the early mornings are still a little nippy, but the afternoons are striving to hit 70º. Spring is clearly here, and that means the outdoor living season will be beginning shortly!
Further, Daylight Savings Time has returned, allowing us to celebrate by enjoying more fun, relaxation, and leisure time outdoors in the longer days. Speaking of which, the U.S. Senate passed legislation last Tuesday that would make Daylight Saving Time permanent starting in 2023, ending the twice-annual changing of clocks in a move promoted by supporters advocating brighter afternoons and more economic activity. The Senate approved the measure, called the Sunshine Protection Act, unanimously by voice vote. The House of Representatives, which has held a committee hearing on the matter, must still pass the bill before it can go to President Joe Biden to sign. Soon, longer days could be the norm!
The ultimate spoiler: Mosquito season Virginia
Guess who else is in a party mood with all this springtime news? Those tiny creatures of dread and disease that plague us as we enjoy our time in warmer weather – mosquitoes in Virginia. From the annoying buzzing around our faces to the painful bites, mosquitoes are unwelcome visitors every spring and summer. We hate the fact that we must dress more like it is autumn when we head outside with protective clothing. And, worst of all, we loathe the terrible diseases that they can spread through their bites.
Fear not, for mosquito season in Virginia is no match for the Mosquito Squad of Central Virginia experts.
The Virginia mosquito season is lengthening
With shifting weather patterns and global warming, mosquito season in Virginia is lasting longer than ever. And, can you guess where the most rampant mosquito population is? Neighboring Washington, DC!
Mosquitoes will be searching for a blood meal to give birth to more of these horrible little monsters from March through November. And if it stays warmer later, then these creatures are happy to torment us through fall, too. That means there is more time for Virginia mosquitoes to transmit the diseases they carry. To defend against this prolonged mosquito season, call Mosquito Squad for long-lasting mosquito control.
