A vast majority of the world’s climate scientists, along with NASA, say climate change is really happening and may be worse than originally thought, negatively impacting day-to-day life. How has climate change affected the Greenville area? With a longer mosquito season, of course. In fact, since the 1980s, the increasing temperatures have extended mosquito season in Greenville by 14 days!
Will the Mosquito Problem Get Worse in Greenville?
If temperatures continue to grow over the years, does that mean the mosquito problem will continue to get worse? Unfortunately, signs point to yes.
Mosquitoes prefer warmer climates. As temperatures increase in the summer months, they tend to migrate up the coast. While there is currently a fairly well-defined mosquito season in Greenville, it’s possible that mosquitoes could stick around all year long if temperatures continue to rise over the years.
Throw standing water into the mix, and the problem gets worse. The combination of prolonged warm weather and standing water means more mosquitoes. More mosquitoes likely mean more mosquito-borne illnesses, such as West Nile and Zika.
