Once again, warm weather is finally returning to the Northeast, and scientists are worried. Why? Based on research over the past couple of years, results suggest that mosquito populations in Connecticut have increased by 60 percent over the past two decades. Due to shifting environmental factors like temperature and moisture availability, mosquitoes are experiencing some of the most favorable conditions they’ve seen in generations. And, disturbingly, mosquitoes are exhibiting a pattern of preference for blood from mammals. Although we don’t often think of mosquitoes as anything more than a nuisance, scientists are concerned that the coming years could change our perception of these insects.
Mosquitoes, like ticks, are known to carry diseases that can be highly detrimental to human health. We are accustomed to news about malaria, yellow fever, and other terrible diseases that afflict regions around the world, but we’ve mostly been spared over the centuries due to our cooler climate. Unfortunately, climate change appears to be removing our natural defense against mosquitoes: freezing temperatures. As the weather warms, mosquitoes emerge earlier and depart later, creating the possibility of a greater spread of mosquito-borne diseases in the future. Although infections are relatively rare currently, there is real reason to be worried as temperatures continue to climb. To defend your outdoor lifestyle and your health this spring, summer, and fall, make sure to explore your mosquito control options. Contracting a mosquito-borne disease is a truly disturbing scenario, and so is the thought of being attacked by swarms of mosquitoes as you attempt to spend time outside.
