Mosquitoes are ‘Toughing Out’ the Cold Weather

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the cooler climates mean less chance for mosquitoes to breed! A recent article has published that these ‘suckers’ are laying their larvae and they are surviving the colder months and ready to hatch in spring.

Summer preview: Mosquito eggs undaunted by freezing temps

A prolonged freeze should mean fewer mosquitoes this summer, right?Wrong, said Amanda Beehler, manager of the Benton County Mosquito Control District.We have dormant mosquito eggs out there waiting to hatch and become spring mosquitoes, she explained.

As we know, mosquitoes carry a myriad of viruses, some of which are more harmful than others, and with the change in the current climate, it makes it really unpredictable as to just what we are up against with these disease spreading bugs.

Scientists are continuing to find methods of defence when it comes to mosquito borne diseases, one of which may actually involve human cells.

Defence Mechanism in Human Cells May Be Used to Fight Deadly Diseases

Outbreaks of the influenza, Ebola, West Nile, and Zika viruses have caused notable epidemics affecting the health of people around the world in recent years. Now, a research team from the University of Californias Riverside campus has released new findings identifying a virus-suppressing function in human cells that may be used to fight deadly diseases.

While the scientists do their job, you can do yours, by investing in mosquito control for your own home. Whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall, mosquitoes will make your back yard their breeding ground. Don’t let them get comfortable! Get the pests away from your home today!
