Winter is Coming, But Not Soon Enough to Control Mosquitoes

Flock of mosquitoes

If you’re like us, you’ve spent the last few months enjoying the summer with abandon, as you should! The warm weather is always a welcome break from the cold, but we are now entering the final act of summer; fall and winter are not far away! The end of the summer season doesn’t mean the warm weather will vanish without a trace, though. Hints of summer will continue to bring us joy in the coming months, but such weather patterns have a downside. Unfortunately, warm weather means mosquitoes are sticking around for a while, even into autumn, and it is important to prepare yourself so you aren’t caught unaware.

Southwick mosquito control remains important during the fall

As you probably know, mosquitoes are a genuine problem in our region for a few reasons. Firstly, mosquito populations are incredibly abundant throughout Massachusetts and the rest of the Northeast. Due to a few factors like a warming climate, expanded habitat, and plentiful food, mosquitoes are thriving, which spells trouble for us. Mosquitoes are small, but they possess powerful targeting sensors that allow them to identify sources of blood from more than 30 feet away. Humans are some of the biggest, commonly available blood sources around, so we are a treasure trove for the mosquitoes roaming our properties. For outdoor gatherings or simple relaxation sessions outside, such targeting abilities are a threat.

Further, mosquitoes deliver bites that aren’t always harmless. Although relatively rare, mosquito bites can cause us to contract illnesses like West Nile virus, which has popped up in our region in recent weeks. In severe cases, this disease can be very harmful to human health, giving us even more reason to try and defend ourselves against these insects. Fortunately, professional assistance isn’t far away.
