If you’re like us, you have been anxiously awaiting the start of the outdoor living season for some time now. Winters in the Northeast are known to be cold and long, so it’s no surprise that people build lots of anticipation for this time of year. For many, spending time in their outdoor living space or taking long walks in the woods are some of the highlights that come with summer. Unfortunately, we aren’t the only creatures that reemerge when the warm season returns. Ticks and mosquitoes are the best-known pests that ruin the outdoor living experience every year. In past centuries, ticks and mosquitoes were controlled by the checks and balances of our climate, but in recent decades both species have seen unprecedented population growth. Why is this? Our climate is changing both in the Northeast and in the rest of the country. Our region has slowly experienced rising temperatures that are mostly imperceptible to us, but even the smallest changes can have widespread impacts.
South Windsor mosquito control is important in the fight against disease
Although this spring has been relatively cool, the overwhelming trend indicates that spring is arriving earlier and summer/fall are departing later. Thus, the seasons in which ticks and mosquitoes thrive are lasting longer than ever. Although these changes are great for extending our time outside, the same can’t be said for our pest control efforts. Ticks and mosquitoes are not just nuisances that steal blood. They are capable of spreading dangerous diseases that can cause severe health consequences, including death. For example, ticks spread illnesses like Lyme disease and mosquitoes can transmit West Nile virus. Both diseases are curable, but symptoms like fatigue, weakness, pain, and others can persist for weeks to months. For example, post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome is known to last for more than six months and can cause difficulty thinking, memory issues, and more. Thus, keeping both ticks and mosquitoes away is more important than ever.
