Warning! If you are planning an outdoor event, whether that be a family BBQ or an outdoor wedding reception or birthday bash, there is one guest you don’t want crashing your party: mosquitoes! They never travel alone and there are over 50 known species of mosquitoes in Massachusetts.

Mosquitoes can ruin an outdoor event faster than an even an unexpected rain shower. Why? Because, at least with rain, you can prepare in advance and have a tent set up and continue on with the dancing. With mosquitoes though, there is seemingly little relief from the buzz, itch, and bite. This especially holds true if your area is plagued with the Asian Tiger mosquitoes.

Unlike our standard mosquitoes which feed primarily from dusk till dawn, Asian Tiger mosquitoes are voracious daytime feeders. Hungry and rapid breeders, one bug can easily reproduce itself 3,000 times. That is just one mosquito reproducing in a single season!

Mosquitoes, are intense blood suckers. Their bites leave nasty welts on your arms, neck, face, and legs. Mosquitoes are vectors for many diseases, such as West Nile Virus (WNV), chikungunya, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).
