Spring is knocking on our doors, and so are mosquitoes. But don’t fret!

As the first signs of spring emerge, so too does an unwelcome guest: the mosquito. With this year’s warmer weather patterns, mosquito season is kicking off earlier than usual, bringing with it increased concerns for public health and community well-being. Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance; they are vectors for serious diseases such as West Nile virus, Zika, dengue, and malaria, posing significant health risks to humans and animals alike.

Nationwide trends indicate a troubling rise in mosquito populations, partly due to changing climate conditions that create more hospitable environments for them to breed and thrive. Moreover, the spread of invasive mosquito species complicates control efforts and heightens the risk of disease outbreaks.
