West Nile Virus is Here, Northampton Mosquito Control Important Through Fall

Have you made the most of this summer? Every time the warmer months roll around, we feel compelled to make lots of plans in the outdoors, and for good reason. The summer weather in our region is something to look forward to every year, but summer will slowly come to a close in the coming months. August and September are typically the last months that harbor summer weather, meaning now is the time to take advantage of the outdoors. However, spending time outside comes with a catch in our region.

Due to warming climate conditions and a few other factors, mosquito populations are exploding in Massachusetts, causing serious disruptions to our attempts at enjoying nature. Very few things are quite as annoying as mosquitoes that relentlessly search for opportunities to bite you and deliver a painful welt. Indeed, mosquitoes are incredibly good at targeting us and other animals, which is problematic for another reason. Although we don’t typically think of mosquito-borne diseases as a problem in the U.S., they do exist here, emphasizing the importance of defensive measures against these insects.

Northampton mosquito control is vital in the coming months

Just a few weeks ago, West Nile virus was detected in MA for the first time this year, meaning there is some time yet before we can relax without mosquitoes. Mosquitoes don’t tolerate cold weather, but it can take until the end of fall before temperatures fall enough for the insects to die off. You can expect that mosquitoes will remain active in our region through the fall, so make sure you are defended against them and the West Nile virus they can carry. To adequately keep mosquitoes away, professional assistance is the best route to take.
