If you have been cooped up for most of the winter, you aren’t alone. As much as we would like to spend more time outside, the winter keeps us locked inside most of the time. When spring arrives, however, we become far more active than during the cold seasons. Spring and summer are the seasons for activity, relaxation, and time spent outside in the glorious weather. Outdoor activities abound in this season, when we complete home upgrades, host parties, or simply bask in the sun. We aren’t the only animals spurned into activity when warm weather arrives, though. Just as we emerge from our winter hideouts, mosquitoes do the same and jeopardize our enjoyment of the summer months.
Mosquito control and disease defense
Mosquitoes are widely seen as a mild annoyance in the United States, but these insects are far more threatening than they seem. Feeding their offspring with blood, mosquitoes are flying disease receptacles that can freely transmit pathogens to unsuspecting victims. West Nile virus, for example, is endemic in the U.S., and infection rates are rising as mosquito season lengthens due to climate change. To combat the growing mosquito threat, mosquito control has dramatically increased in popularity. How do you know what mosquito control works? There are a few factors, but you probably shouldn’t trust devices you find at home improvement stores. Like most of the mosquito control market, mosquito zappers and other devices are largely ineffectual against mosquito swarms. To keep most mosquitoes away from your property altogether, expert mosquito control is the key.
