August is finally here, and that means summer is approaching its tail end. We’ve had a lot of time to savor the outdoors this year, and with the warmer months coming to a close, you should aim to take advantage of the remainder of the summer while it’s here. However, you should be especially vigilant of the insects that can ruin your outdoor time in the coming months. As you already know, mosquitoes are an enormous nuisance in our region, relentlessly biting and whining around our yards in search of blood. There are few things as annoying as a mosquito, especially when they come in groups, and it is important to keep these insects away to ensure your time outdoors is unspoiled. These insects are more than a mere nuisance though. Mosquitoes have a far darker side than we usually see; they can also transmit dangerous diseases to us when they bite. Although relatively rare in the U.S., mosquito-borne diseases are nothing to mess with as some can cause life-altering consequences.

In recent weeks, mosquito samples from across CT have been returning concerning results, prompting a researcher to say that it is only a matter of days until a confirmed West Nile virus case is found in a human. Last week, eight CT communities had mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile virus, including in Darien, Fairfield, Westport, Hartford, New Haven, Stamford, Stratford, and Greenwich. Although most cases of West Nile go without symptoms, some cases can be serious, especially in those over the age of 50. The downside of contracting this disease and others from mosquitoes is potentially enormous, highlighting the importance of mosquito control, especially from professional sources.
