Football season has arrived in Worcester, but that doesn’t mean you can let your guard down when it comes to mosquitos. Populations might be dwindling, but these insects will continue to be active through October. That means that all the time you want to spend enjoying a beautiful New England autumn, you may be dealing with mosquitoes; while you’re harvesting the last of your garden, playing football with the kids, or just sitting with friends and family.
Skeeters flying around are a nuisance, and their bites are unpleasant, but remember that mosquitoes are more than pests. They can carry serious diseases, such as Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Virus.
Reducing Mosquito Populations
There are a few steps you can take to reduce the number of mosquitoes around your Worcester home:
Get rid of standing water, which often collects in unexpected places such as wheelbarrows and kid’s toys left outside. Mosquitoes lay their eggs on the surface of water.
Keep your grass trimmed to give mosquitoes fewer hiding places.
Repair window screens and keep doors shut so mosquitoes can’t enter your home.
