When Should I Begin to Schedule Mosquito Control?

Mosquitoes are the bane of our summer enjoyment. Without fail, these insects emerge from their winter hideouts at nearly the same time we do every year. It would seem that we aren’t the only animals that enjoy warmer weather. As great as summers are in our region, mosquitoes are a tradeoff that we must accept, much to our disappointment. If you’ve struggled to cope with mosquito swarms in your yard before, trust us, you’re not alone. Believe it or not, climate conditions in recent years have improved for mosquitoes, meaning they are becoming more prevalent in our suburban environments.

Why is this trend concerning? Climate experts and mosquito studies suggest that, in addition to burgeoning mosquito populations, mosquito-borne diseases are expected to become far more common. Historically, mosquitoes in the U.S. don’t have a terrifying reputation like their counterparts on other continents, but their status as a mere nuisance could soon change. West Nile virus, a mosquito-borne disease, is already endemic to the United States, and other diseases are likely to become more widespread, too. Such disease spread will likely become possible due to a mosquito species called Aedes Aegypti, which used to be confined to tropical and subtropical zones. Due to our warming climate, this mosquito species is expected to spread northward, threatening our nation with Zika virus, dengue fever, and others that are very dangerous. To thwart mosquitoes now and in the future, make sure to start your mosquito control around April or whenever temperatures reach a sustained level of 45-50+ degrees Fahrenheit, when mosquitoes emerge.
