It’s Officially Peak West Nile Virus Season in CT

As great as the summer season is, not everything is well in the Northeast. Due to warming climate conditions, ample food supplies, and favorable environments, mosquito populations are rapidly expanding in our region. Whether we like it or not, these insects are here to stay, and they are only expected to become more troublesome in the years and decades to come. This spells trouble for our outdoor living experiences every summer as mosquitoes are the bane of time spent in nature. Indeed, there are few things more annoying than whining mosquitoes that relentlessly pursue us for blood, and there is more bad news.

Why mosquito control is critically important this summer

Based on research conducted in recent years, some species of mosquito now perceive humans as a preferred source of blood, meaning we may experience more bites in the future. As if this weren’t troubling enough, mosquitoes are also increasingly prone to carrying diseases in our part of the world. While we typically associate mosquito-borne diseases with other continents around the globe, the United States is more habitable for mosquitoes that are associated with dangerous diseases like West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). We won’t necessarily be caught off guard by the rise of these diseases, though. Every year, researchers across CT at numerous collection sites sample mosquito populations to assess what diseases are or are not present. Beginning this month, sampling has begun and will continue through October at 108 collection sites across the state. Yes, we will have some warnings about the prevalence of mosquito-borne diseases, but you can never be too careful. You never know what might be lurking in the backyard, and there is no need to take chances with dangerous diseases. With this in mind, it is important to consider how you can defend yourself and your family from mosquito bites. The best method? Professional mosquito control.
