Mosquito Control Awareness 2016 in the North Shore

Posted by Mosquito Squad

Mosquitoes are the deadliest creatures on the planet, responsible for more human deaths than any other animal. Each year we use the nationally publicized Mosquito Control Awareness week to remind the residents of the North Shore of Massachusetts why mosquito control is so very important. June 26-July 2, 2016 marks this year’s American Mosquito Control Association’s mosquito control awareness week, the first since the devastating Zika Virus emerged on the world scene.

Given that we have had no local transmission of the Zika Virus, we are very lucky, but continue to remain vigilant in informing the public about Zika, Zika prevention, and other mosquito-borne viruses. In the North Shore of Massachusetts, the main disease threat that comes from mosquitoes is West Nile Virus for humans, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) for humans or horses and of course the dangerous heartworm that can be deadly for our canine companions.


When it comes to mosquito control for humans and our pets, there is a great deal of gimmicks, do-it-yourself remedies and stinky sprays and candles. While some of these options offer some form of protection, most are just a hassle or offer limited protection in a very small space. When it comes to mosquito control in the North Shore, elimination of mosquitoes is the best tried and true method for long-term results and a care-free outdoor lifestyle.
