Throughout the Northeast, temperatures are finally indicating that summer is here, and so is all the summer fun we’ve planned this winter season. Hiking, hosting gatherings, spending time in the yard, or making a trip to the beach are options on the table. As with any plan, it is important to be prepared to prevent variables that could potentially ruin your day outside. From sunburn to irritating bugs, there are quite a few things to consider defending against! Of particular concern this summer is the return of dreaded mosquitoes. Biting, whining, and searching for meals on the go, these insects are the antithesis of outdoor enjoyment. Not only do they cause painful, itchy, red bites, but mosquitoes are also capable of transmitting dangerous diseases to humans.
Why is Huntington mosquito control essential?
West Nile virus is the most common mosquito-borne disease in the United States. Although the disease has relatively few cases reported every year, warming temperatures throughout the country are likely to fuel the spread of this disease. Thus, it is incredibly important to defend against these insects. When should you be on the alert for mosquitoes, though? Sometimes it can feel like there is no rhyme or reason why mosquitoes emerge when they do. As you can probably guess, mosquitoes begin to emerge when warmer weather returns; above 50 degrees Fahrenheit, to be exact. Mosquitoes have no mechanism to regulate their body temperature, so they are fully reliant on the temperature of their surroundings to support their body’s operations. 50 degrees is a milestone often reached in mid-spring, so you can expect to see mosquitoes starting around April through October. Of course, there can be some variation in this season depending on the weather, but this is generally the time to keep an eye out for these critters.
