When you spend time at home, what part of your home is your sanctuary? For many who have the option, taking a moment to relax in their yard or their outdoor living space is a part of everyday life. In our modern world, we spend so much time indoors working or watching tv that we oftentimes forget that the outdoors are a scientifically proven place to decompress and rejuvenate. The part of us that loves to enjoy a mellow breeze during the summer is something we hope to never lose, and taking some time to enjoy your yard during the warmer months is a great way to diversify your day-to-day lifestyle. However, there are some things you need to consider first. Your property, despite the name on the deed, isn’t entirely your own.
Many other organisms live in and around your yard, coming and going as they please. While most of these creatures are benign and won’t disrupt you, one insect is a huge exception to this rule. Mosquitoes are a gigantic nuisance every season, and we are expected to see massive numbers of these bugs in the present and future summers. Unfortunately, climate conditions have changed over the past decade to such an extent that scientists are concerned about the benefits mosquitoes will experience as a result. Mosquitoes thrive in moist, warm environments that allow them to feed and raise their young. Although the Northeast isn’t typically associated with such conditions, our modern climate likely means mosquitoes are here to stay for longer and in greater numbers. Furthermore, mosquito-borne diseases are also on the rise, which means precautions are incredibly important. West Nile virus, Zika virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and others are now of great concern to disease specialists in our region, but there are measures you can take to defend against these pathogens. Mosquito Squad is here to help.
