Nightmares in October: Mosquitoes Could Linger into Autumn

Mosquito on a leaf

September is finally here. After the scalding summer and the insects that accompany it, fall offers relief and the promise of cooler weather. What do these seasonal changes mean for the mosquitoes that infest the Northeast? As nice as the warmer months are in our part of the world, we all know that the insects can be intolerable at times. From ticks to mosquitoes, bloodsuckers are around in abundance, meaning we have to stay wary every time we go into the outdoors. This is an unfortunate part of life living in our region, and the bug situation may be worsening.

Wilbraham mosquito control will be important this fall

Due to climate changes and ample food in the Northeast, mosquito populations have experienced dramatic population booms in recent years, elevating concern at public health agencies in Massachusetts and surrounding states. Mosquitoes are only expected to become more abundant in years to come, which raises another issue: Mosquito-borne diseases. Typically, we associate such diseases with far-away continents, but the cruel reality is that mosquito-borne diseases exist here, and we may see more cases in humans in the coming years.

Indeed, West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), and others illnesses are now found in Massachusetts, which are reasons enough for concern. West Nile virus is the most common disease carried by mosquitoes in the U.S., and the disease can be dangerous in the young and elderly. EEE, on another hand, is exceedingly dangerous, with life-altering consequences almost certain in severe cases. Although the likelihood of contracting one of these diseases is relatively low today, the potential of this issue worsening is a sobering thought. Not all is doom and gloom, though. With the help of professionals, you can dramatically reduce the risk of encountering mosquitoes in your yard.
