Throughout the past 2 years, there’s been a lot of doom and gloom in the news. From politics to pandemics, there never seems to be a break from the endless barrage of news. Sadly, we need to add some bad news to the list, but unlike what you see in the news, we’ll offer some actual solutions rather than demonstrative despair. As you have probably heard before, our region has the unfortunate honor of calling itself one of the leading areas for tick and mosquito-borne diseases. Unlike the south, where these creatures thrive but don’t often carry disease, the Northeast is quickly gaining a reputation as the home of a potential health crisis. This issue can be attributed to a few factors. Unlike decades prior, the Northeast is quickly experiencing climate changes that include warming temperatures. While it might not be perceptible to us, changing temperatures are directly benefitting mosquito populations by allowing them to emerge from their eggs earlier and remain later into the fall. Mosquitoes might seem like a mere nuisance, but they hide a much darker truth. These insects are disease carriers, and diseased mosquitoes are slowly growing in number. West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), and others are being detected throughout CT, which is a serious reason for concern. Both of these diseases can cause serious illness; EEE especially so. EEE causes swelling on the brain, resulting in a roughly 30% fatality rate among cases and leaving around half of survivors with lasting neurological damage.
Even more concerning is the growing prevalence of these diseases. New Haven CT is listed as the 16th buggiest city in the entire United States. Furthermore, there were 35 cities across CT where mosquitoes were detected with West Nile virus. EEE was also identified in mosquito samples in Voluntown. Judging by the presence of these diseases in these areas, mosquito control has reached an unprecedented level of importance in our region. Don’t worry too much, though. At Mosquito Squad, we specialize in defending customers from mosquitoes and their associated diseases.
