In our modern world, change is something we must surrender ourselves to, but not all change is good. Climate change, for example, is having widespread effects across the globe, as well as in our beloved Connecticut. We may not feel these environmental shifts as they take some time to occur, but they are there, nonetheless. Unfortunately, rising temperatures don’t necessarily mean we’re going to have a better summer than usual. On the contrary, this season could be the opposite. In our day-to-day lives, it can be straightforward to fall into rhythms and fail to register small changes around us, but we’re here to encourage you to take notice of your outdoor surrounding more than usual this year. Why? We aren’t the only creatures that enjoy the warmer summers, and not all are friendly. As you likely know already, ticks and mosquitoes are incredibly problematic in our region, threatening our outdoor living season as we know it. What makes these insects so dangerous, though?
Enfield tick control has never been more important
Not only are ticks disturbing nuisances, but they are also a severe threat to our health. Ticks are parasites, meaning they will latch onto any animal they can to steal a blood meal. From lizards to humans, much of the food chain is on the menu! What makes this indiscriminate feeding behavior so problematic are the diseases that ticks pick up from their feasts. For example, ticks are the sole cause of Lyme disease in the United States, responsible for infecting anywhere from 300,000 to 400,000 people every year. Such numbers are astronomical, and the issue is only expected to worsen as tick populations explode and traverse into previously inaccessible regions.
Enfield Mosquito control for enhanced outdoor enjoyment
Mosquitoes in our region don’t transmit diseases in our region with the frequency ticks do, but they remain a threat. Furthermore, they’re incredibly annoying. From hanging around outside to attending special events, wherever you go this summer, you are almost guaranteed to encounter mosquitoes in abundance. With their irritating, painful bites, these insects belong nowhere near your property, especially considering there is a chance a mosquito could be carrying diseases like West Nile virus. Fortunately, professional services can defend against both mosquitoes and ticks.
