Living in the Northeast comes with many benefits, but there is a notable downside come the summer months. Like most of the eastern seaboard, mosquitoes are a huge problem in Massachusetts both for our outdoor enjoyment as well as for our health. As we all know, spending time in the outdoors during the summer is something to be savored. Whether you like to take hikes or simply chill on the back patio, we have a lot to enjoy this time of year, but mosquitoes are a near-constant nuisance. Mosquitoes are notoriously good at identifying their victims and pursuing them relentlessly, a fact we know only too well. Although mosquitoes seem like simple organisms, they boast a highly developed targeting system that allows them to discover their blood sources from more than 30 feet away. This is a distressing fact considering that there is almost always a mosquito within this distance from you during the summer.
Even more distressing is the fact that mosquitoes can cause us to develop dangerous diseases like West Nile virus in MA. Indeed, in the past month, researchers in MA have discovered mosquito samples that contained this virus. Although most who contract West Nile virus may never experience symptoms, those who do can experience flu-like symptoms, fevers, and more serious illness in some cases. Those over the age of 50 are at a greater risk of developing a serious illness. As much as we’d like these insects to leave us alone, they are here to stay, and their numbers may grow in the coming years. Due to climate shifts in our region, mosquitoes have experienced unprecedented population booms in recent years, meaning there is a chance that mosquito-borne diseases will become more prevalent as well. With these facts in mind, make sure to consider professional mosquito control for your home.
