With so many unusual weather patterns across New England the past few seasons, AllGreen has kept up with mosquito control concerns in Massachusetts to help keep our customers informed and educated. Residents are growing more worried about the implications of a wet spring, and it turns out, they have an excellent reason to be. Maine health officials believe the unusually wet spring season could have severe implications for increased mosquito populations.
Unlike the drought New England faced last summer, 2017 has been expected to continue delivering heavy rains. According to the National Centers for Environmental Information, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), record and new-record May precipitation fell in the Northeast and the sixth wettest spring since record-keeping began. This moisture has helped mosquitoes find standing water to reproduce, and have had a noticeable impact on those near Maine’s coast.
In an interview with David Sharp of the Associated Press, Sara Robinson, an epidemiologist at the Maine Center for Disease Control, notes the increase in mosquito population has been noticeable to many, but also it is too early to tell if it will also increase the cases of West Nile Virus or Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). The worry of these illnesses is understandable, and many will want to take action to prevent potential cases from occurring.
Fortunately, there are solutions that many Northeast residents can invest in to help to avoid mosquitoes from ruining their time outside and protect against these illnesses. AllGreen can provide you with an affordable mosquito control program that will let you rest easy knowing your family, pets, and loved ones are safe. Our knowledgeable team would love to tell you more about our programs and what they can do to help you.
