Author: Mosquito Squad Fairfeild, Lyme and New Haven County

Mosquitoes, a problem? Are they ever! They come to our outdoor parties, sans invitation. They whizz and buzz around our head when hiking or jogging. Their bites itch and fester. And while all these are the most obvious mosquito problems, a bigger mosquito problem exists in CT. Climate change is contributing to problems all around the country, and mosquitoes are directly benefitting from environmental changes. Warmer weather in the Northeast has extended the habitable range for mosquitoes, and such movement directly threatens the health and happiness of those living in Connecticut. Unfortunately, mosquitoes and the diseases that accompany them will become more prevalent, but there is still hope. Take steps to defend against these bloodsuckers with the expert services available at Mosquito Squad.

Here’s the real mosquito problem in CT.

Mosquitoes and their bites are annoying to say the least, but there is a darker side to these insects we often don’t see. Although it is not their intent, bloodsucking insects are known for their ability to spread diseases across the planet. In fact, mosquitoes are the deadliest animals on earth, killing hundreds of thousands of people each year with insidious infections and diseases. For this reason, CT residents should be concerned. In an effort to monitor mosquito populations and their ability to spread disease, scientists will trap these insects to get an accurate idea of the mosquito-borne diseases circulating around the state. In results published this past September, testing results detected West Nile virus in 35 Connecticut cities. West Nile virus has a bad reputation for very good reason. Symptoms of this virus include head and body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever, but even cured cases may experience lingering symptoms that can last for weeks or months. In worst-case scenarios, death is possible. So, with this scary virus lingering in CT backyards, why take risks exposing yourself and your family to dangerous mosquito-borne diseases?

Professional mosquito control in CT is a large part of the answer to the mosquito problem.
