Increased Precipitation Leads to More Mosquitoes

PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY – 13 Jul, 2017 – New Jersey has gotten some untypical weather compared to previous years. Weather has been slightly colder in May and June than previous years, but there was one huge increase: precipitation.

For the month of May, New Jersey was about two inches over the average amount of rainfall from years past. Even June has seen more rain that before. With these increases in precipitation, there is one pest people will need to look out for more now than ever.

Mosquitoes love humid and moist climates, which is why they will love New Jersey this summer. And now as temperatures begin to rise, more mosquitoes will be coming alive, creating more chances for contracting mosquito-borne diseases like West Nile Virus, which has already been detected in New York City.

What can people do to protect themselves and their families from these pests?

There are different things people can do with their home and themselves to fight against mosquitoes. One trick is using insect repellent every time you go out. Although this seems like such a basic requirement, it really makes all the difference when trying to keep these pests from biting you. You can also use candles and other products to keep mosquitoes away if you are outside by yourself or with a group of people.

To keep these pests away from your home, you want to eliminate any standing water that may be surrounding the building. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in water, whether it is in a marsh, lake or the puddle outside your front door. Removing these puddles or any other standing water near your home during this warm weather will prevent mosquitoes from nesting on your property.

You also want to ensure your yard is clear of any debris. Mosquitoes are comfortable in an environment with leaves, sticks, stones and any other unnecessary yard rubbish. If you have other things in your yard that are not from nature, it is best to remove that as well. If it rains, water can stay inside the item, creating standing water that you did not know existed.

Although it may not seem like a big deal, the types of light you use around your home make a difference. Using bright, white lights will attract more than just mosquitoes to your home during the summer months, which will prevent you from enjoying beautiful summer nights. Instead, using bug lights or lights with a yellow hue will help keep these pests away during your summer nights.
