Are you still enjoying the outdoors as much as you can? Now that summer has entered its final months, now is the time to go into nature or your outdoor living space to ensure you’ve made the most of the warm weather. As we enter the beginning of fall, it might seem like you’re less likely to encounter the insects you’d typically avoid during summer, but this is a false assumption.

Mattituck mosquito control remains important, even at summer’s end

August and September (October, too) are all months when mosquitoes thrive, putting our outdoor living experience at risk. Indeed, few things kill the vibe quite like a swarm of ravenous mosquitoes searching for blood. However, the pain from a mosquito bite isn’t the only thing you need to be worried about. An unfortunate fact is that some mosquitoes in our region can transmit dangerous diseases, and recent sampling has returned results where more than 50 mosquito samples tested positive for West Nile virus. The counties in question include Bohemia, West Babylon, Port Jeff Station, Selden, Islip, Brentwood, Bay Shore, and Northport. Although relatively rare, this virus has slowly begun to make the news every year in our part of the world. Why? Due to warming climate conditions and a longer mosquito season, experts believe diseases like West Nile virus will become more common in the coming years, highlighting the importance of staying vigilant and keeping mosquitoes away. To not do so would be taking unnecessary risks with your health and happiness; two things that are hard to come by and easy to lose. With this threat in mind, make sure you’ve taken the necessary precautions to defend against mosquitoes and the diseases they can carry. Fortunately, professional mosquito control is nearby!
