Mosquito and Tick Populations on the Rise

In 2016, there were reports of a significant increase in the mosquito population in Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Georgia and Alabama.

In 2017, there was a longer mosquito season across the United States because of the warm winter and early spring. As a result of that longer season in Central Kentucky, we saw a significant increase in customers seeking mosquito protection. The mosquito population increase in Kentucky reclassified us with states to our south like North Carolina and Tennessee that have longer mosquito seasons.

Before the 2018 season, both the Indianapolis Star and the Chicago Tribune have published news articles citing scientists that predict that each of their cities is projecting to be a major growth area for mosquitoes and ticks in the coming decade.

As major cities to our North are preparing for what climate experts agree is coming their way, now is the time to contact Mosquito Squad of Lexington to protect your squad for the 2018 mosquito season where climate conditions have already arrived.

We want you to enjoy this beautiful season of outdoor living in Central Kentucky!
