The season is upon us. As the cold bite of winter weather begins to fade and the promise of spring and summer months heighten with warmer temperatures, the average New Englander turns his/her thoughts to the outdoors. Hiking, camping, boating, fishing. Weekends at the beach, the Cape. Golfing, softball. Or just the obvious – enjoying the backyard with family and friends. Tag football out front with the neighborhood kids, taking the dog for a walk. Grilling on the outdoor grill. Kicking back with a cold one.
An idyllic picture such as this is what we’ve come to expect living in New England. But the ugly truth is that there are dangers as well. And in our line of work, that means West Nile Virus, EEE and other diseases carried about by the pesky mosquito as well as ticks and fleas.
The U.S. Department of Interior, through its Geological Survey division, has a very interesting website which catalogues the spread of known cases of WNV, EEE and other dangerous diseases. It’s called Disease Maps and you can go to it with this link, https://diseasemaps.usgs.gov/mapviewer/ and see for yourself what is happening in your back yard.
Zero in on northern Massachusetts and you’ll see that we’re right in the cross-hairs of 16 different varieties of mosquitoes. The adult Culex pipiens mosquito is the most common to this region and can carry the WNV. Humans and pets alike are susceptible to the dangers of WNV and EEE. And there appears to be the potential for a growth of reported cases.
That’s what first motivated us to begin Master Mosquito Control. Having been lifelong residents of the area, we are very familiar with the lifestyle, the climate and the expectations that go with living here. And we want to help you enjoy all the New England outdoors has to offer.
