Mosquito Control vs. Lanternfly Control

December 20, 2023

Are you prepared to deal with the pests that frequent our region? Just like in years past, there are a few creatures to keep an eye out for this summer, like mosquitoes and spotted lanternflies. As a resident of the Northeast, it should come as no surprise that mosquitoes are a true annoyance for those who spend time outside, and these insects are only expected to become more problematic. With warming temperatures and restored habitat, mosquito populations are exploding throughout our region, and this spells trouble for the outdoor living season. Not only are mosquito bites annoying and painful, but they can also cause diseases that present serious risks to our health.

West Nile virus, for example, is transmitted by mosquitoes and can cause neurological damage in the most severe cases. As if these insects weren’t bad enough, there is another bug to be on the lookout for this summer. Introduced to the United States around four years ago, the spotted lanternfly is a new invasive species that experts believe could be devastating to the environment and agricultural sector in the coming years. In Pennsylvania alone, predictions indicate that the state could lose $324 million every year across several industries, including timber, wine, plant nurseries, and produce. Massachusetts may expect to see similar economic impacts in the state, meaning controlling these insects is of paramount importance. Fortunately, spotted lanternflies aren’t like mosquitoes in that they don’t seek out your blood. Mosquitoes are a real threat to health and happiness every summer and fall, so it is important to explore what control options are available to you. While individual mosquitoes are frail and easy to eliminate, a property-wide mosquito control effort requires expertise and supplies that most don’t have access to. This is where Mosquito Squad comes in.
