Do Mosquitoes in NJ Spread Diseases?

Winter is finally starting to ease up and the masses will soon flock to their backyards and the natural world to savor the warmth of spring and summer. Enjoying nature is a staple of the warmest months of the year as people seek to dispel the chill of the long, cold winters we have in our region. From enjoying cookouts to savoring a warm summer breeze on the patio, there are all kinds of activities to plan for during this time of year. However, we aren’t the only creatures that like to emerge when the weather becomes favorable. One of the greatest drawbacks of summertime is not the weather, nor is it the longer evenings. It’s mosquitoes. As soon as the weather starts to rise above 50 degrees Fahrenheit consistently, these insects begin to emerge from their eggs, ravenous for a meal. Humans and pets in residential areas are some of the favorite targets for mosquitoes, and that’s cause for real concern.

Why is mosquito control important?

Unlike in other regions of the world, mosquitoes haven’t had a terrible reputation in the Northeast. Sure, they are everywhere and deliver highly unpleasant bites, but is there anything else to worry about? Unfortunately, yes. Mosquitoes are increasingly capable of spreading diseases to humans in the Northeast for a variety of factors. One of the reasons for this shift is due to climate change. While the changes might be imperceptible to us, the weather is consistently trending towards being warmer earlier than ever. The longer mosquitoes can exist without being culled by winter temperatures, the more likely they are to pick up a disease in the warmer months. This is a scary trend, and you need to be prepared. Neither you nor your pets deserve to contract a mosquito-borne disease, so make sure you take preventative measures.
