Spring and summer in Long Island are a true breath of fresh air after the freezing winters, but did you know these seasons can be even better? Every season has its downsides, and the warmer months can be tainted by the relentless, bloodsucking mosquitoes and ticks that call the Northeast home. In the past, these pests were a tolerable nuisance, but their populations are rapidly expanding. So too is the prevalence of the diseases ticks and mosquitoes carry, including Lyme disease, Zika virus, and others. This is an unfortunate fact of our time, yet there are solutions to this growing issue. At Mosquito Squad of Long Island, we offer Huntington’s best mosquito control to defend you and your family from these nasty critters.
Are you searching for, "Huntington best mosquito control?"
If so, you’ve come to the right place! At Mosquito Squad, our team specializes in defending your family and property from the backyard threats of mosquitoes and ticks. So, what are these threats and how do we deal with them?
First and foremost, it is important to know why mosquitoes and ticks are suddenly a topic of such concern in Long Island and the rest of the Northwest. In recent years, our warming climate has facilitated the expansion of traditional tick and mosquito territory from southern regions into the north, and tick-borne diseases like Lyme disease have also seen a greater occurrence in the U.S. and Long Island. Tick populations are kept in check by temperatures that are consistently under 45 degrees Fahrenheit, but as temperatures rise, more and more ticks can survive the winter. To illustrate tick territory’s expansion, Lyme disease cases per 100,000 people have nearly doubled since 1991, and this is the danger that might be lying in your back yard. The disease, while typically curable, has been known to cause aftereffects that can last for months or years. Why risk exposing yourself or your family to this risk?
Mosquito populations are also on the rise, and as a disease vector, they can spread Zika virus and others. It is important to observe mosquitoes as a threat. As bloodsuckers, they are basically nature’s flying syringes, but their needles have never been cleaned.
