December 20, 2023
Throughout summer, mosquito populations ebb and flow, mostly dependent on weather. Towards the latter half of the season, mosquito-borne diseases begin to emerge in local mosquito populations. Recently, Massachusetts received its first West Nile virus (WNV) positive test of 2023, underscoring the importance of mosquito control and proactive measures to keep our yards treated. At Mosquito Squad of Southeastern MA, we take this development seriously. We are dedicated to providing effective solutions to reduce the risk to you and your loved ones from mosquito-borne illnesses. What is the significance of the first WNV case of the year?
Understanding West Nile Virus
The West Nile virus is a mosquito-borne illness that can cause mild to severe symptoms in infected individuals. With the first positive test of 2023 reported in Massachusetts, it's crucial to be aware of the potential risks and take necessary precautions to prevent mosquito bites.

In addition to professional mosquito control services, we encourage everyone to take personal protection measures during mosquito season. Wearing protective clothing, using mosquito repellents, and avoiding outdoor activities during peak mosquito hours can reduce the risk of mosquito bites. Keeping the yard clear of standing water following rain is an important prevention measure to reduce breeding sites in the yard as well.

The recent West Nile Virus positive test in Massachusetts reminds us of the importance of staying vigilant throughout all of mosquito season.
