Once again, the Northeast is facing a mosquito epidemic of epic proportions. Every year, these insects return with a vengeance, hoping to feed and breed as quickly as possible. Although they are driven by the need to survive and reproduce, just like humans, we are both, directly and indirectly, fueling our mosquito problem. Climate changes, for example, are attributable to human activity, and our part of the world is seeing temperature changes that shift the typical mosquito season.
As our springs become warmer, even if we may not notice the change, mosquitoes will emerge earlier to take advantage of the warmer months. Furthermore, we can play a role in creating and eliminating mosquito habitats. You may know this already, but mosquitoes are reliant on standing water to raise their eggs. Mosquito larvae stay in aquatic environments for weeks before finally leaving as a full-fledged adults, and this is where many mosquito control efforts are directed. Indeed, whether in a metropolitan, suburban, or rural environment, we can work to reduce mosquito populations by removing standing water in which they can thrive.
Cities are responsible for waterways and drainage systems, but these can cause mosquito problems. For example, if a drainage canal is clogged, the standing water will warm and provide the perfect habitat for a mosquito larva to grow. You may not have a drainage canal in your yard, but certain areas in your yard will probably harbor mosquitoes this summer.
Some places in your yard that could host mosquitoes are birdbaths and wading pools, untreated pools, roof gutters, rain barrels, decomposing tree stumps, and holes in trees. There are a ton of spots for mosquitoes to raise their young, so it is best to be prepared with your own mosquito control program.
