Bergen county received a lot of rainfall this spring. A little more than fourteen inches or about two inches more than normal. Cool and wet has turned into warm and wet. Now that summer is here, so are the mosquitoes. Lots and lots of puddles and places for the buzzing pest, the mosquito, to breed and multiply.
In 2017, we all heard a lot about the dangers of mosquitoes and the Zika virus and the problems associated with it. However, a greater problem for us in Bergen county and New Jersey, as a whole, is the West Nile virus, which is also carried by the mosquito. There were eight reported cases in New Jersey in 2017 which sadly resulted in two deaths, as reported by the Center for Disease Control.
The good news is mosquitoes can be managed and the state of New Jersey does a great job. You have to do your part too. Check your home for sources of standing water to help reduce the mosquito threat in your own backyard. Go to our Mosquito Control and Gnat Control page to see some of the common sources of mosquitoes around the home.
