We can keep your backyard free of these this season.

Mosquitoes in Southern New Hampshire are capable of pulling a punch with the diseases they can transmit. In fact, here in Southern New Hampshire, they can actually pull a triple punch with three mosquito-borne illness that can be found in our area. It’s important to know the symptoms of these diseases and how to control the mosquito population in your Southern New Hampshire yard. Let’s start with the three mosquito-borne viruses and their symptoms:

Mosquito-Borne Diseases in Southern New Hampshire

Chills, Fever, Joint Paint, and Muscle Pain.   More severe symptoms include headache, irritability, restlessness, drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, and coma. Fever, joint pain, muscle pain, headache, nausea, fatigue and rash
Duration of Symptoms Several weeks to months depending on the severity of infection. 1-2 weeks for systemic infections or longer for more serious cases or the disease may be fatal. Several days to a few weeks although joint pain can last for years.

How to Avoid a Southern New Hampshire Mosquito

By doing these simple things, you can have a mosquito friend in no time.

By doing these simple things, you can have a mosquito friend in no time.

So you know a few people that mosquitoes just won’t leave alone at an outdoor gathering while they completely ignore you. Have you ever wondered why your friend is a magnet and you seem to be a repellant?  Mosquitoes are very selective,  know what they want and know where to find it.  Here’s what they’re looking for:

 

  1.  Type “O” Blood – While it will be hard to change your blood type, mosquitoes find those who are type “O” very, very attractive. Some scientists believe this is related to amino acid and protein levels in this type of blood.
  2. Want You to Have a Drink – Whether your preference is beer, wine, or a margarita, mosquitoes a drawn to those who have been drinking alcohol. Alcohol changes your blood chemistry, and mosquitoes just can’t get enough of it. Cheers!
  3. Persuade You to Get Sweaty – It doesn’t matter if you are working or working out; mosquitoes like sweat. For them, it works like an expensive perfume. So go for a run or mow the grass with a push mower, they won’t be able to resist you.
  4. Choose Dark Clothing – Mosquitoes really don’t care as much for pastels or whites. They’d much prefer you look dark and mysterious. Dig out that little black dress or a nice navy shirt and you’re to be a winner.
  5. Like the Pregnant One – Mosquitoes really love moms-to-be. Again, this is probably related to blood chemistry, but they find these ladies especially enticing.

 

Protect yourself and your family this mosquito season.

Protect yourself and your family this mosquito season.

Okay, we realize you aren’t really trying to attract a mosquito. You’d much prefer to drive them away. They’re pesky, painful, and carry diseases no one wants. Of course, some of the characteristics mosquitoes love cannot be helped, but knowing what mosquitoes find attractive can help you make choices accordingly. If you have type “O” blood, that’s not going to change, but your choice of drink can.

Mosquito-cast: Southern New Hampshire 2014

Well, it is officially spring, and the deeper into the season we get the more mosquitoes will begin raising their ugly heads. As you will be dealing with these pests, it is good to know what you may be up against this season. A forecast for mosquitoes might make our fight a little easier. Turns out forecasts do exist, and one based out of Cornell University, gives projections for the entire season in the New Hampshire. According to this projection, the adult mosquito population will be much higher than average this season and will peak sometime in early to mid July.

 

Mosquito eggs need water to develop.

Mosquito eggs need water to develop.

What, you might say, is the cause for such high projections for 2014? Very likely, our winter weather is to blame. We have had a lot of snow, and as the weather warms, the snow pack melts and causes wet conditions for long periods of time. It will take a while for the ground to dry out. Mosquito eggs need water in order to continue developing into larva, pupa, and subsequently adults. And while you can see mosquito eggs in puddles, they don’t really require an abundance of water to develop. Mosquito eggs can survive in piles of fallen, wet leaves and grass clippings. Where there is moisture in the spring, there are mosquito eggs.

 

Just one female mosquito can produced hundreds of females that will also reproduce.

Just one female mosquito can produced hundreds of females that will also reproduce.

So why isn’t the peak forecasted earlier in the season? Because of the way mosquitoes multiply exponentially. A single female lays up to 300 eggs during each egg laying period. She can lay eggs during each week of her 4-week lifespan. About 150 of her offspring will be female, and each of these females will lay eggs at the same rate and volume as her mother. That’s a lot of mosquitoes originating from just one, and the warmer temperatures make these offspring more likely to survive.

So what does this mean for you? Get started eliminating mosquito habitats early because there will be plenty of them. Be sure your yard is draining, and clean up piles of leaves or grass. Getting rid of suitable breeding grounds minimizes the number of eggs that will be laid on your property. Also, call Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire. We treat for mosquitoes in all stages of their lives, including eggs. If we eliminate eggs during the spring, you will have fewer adult mosquitoes to contend with later in the season and can have much more enjoyable days and evenings outdoors.

A Mosquito is a Mosquito is a Mosquito

The Asian Tiger mosquito can be easily identified by the white and black stripes on its legs and abdomen.

The Asian Tiger mosquito can be easily identified by the white and black stripes on its legs and abdomen.

Right? Well, not really. While it’s true that all mosquito bites hurt, make us miserable, and have the potential of spreading diseases, mosquitoes themselves are actually quite different from one another if we look at them closely. Here in Southern New Hampshire, our environment actually contains 47 different species of mosquitoes, each with unique characteristics. But out of these 47, only a few are responsible for the spreading West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). The two biggest culprits are the Asian Tiger Mosquito (Aedes albopictus) and the Cattail Mosquito (Coquillettidia perturbans).

The Asian Tiger mosquito is a relatively recent arrival in the United States. Originally a native of tropical climates, it came to our shores in used tires that were imported from the tropics. These mosquitoes are particularly troublesome because they carry West Nile virus and, unlike many others, are active during daylight hours. Asian Tiger mosquitoes are easily identified by black and white stripes in their legs and abdomen.

While all mosquitoes love water, the Cattail mosquito is especially fond of it. In their larval form, these mosquitoes attach themselves to the roots of water plants. They are able to breath underwater, making them impossible to eliminate with larvicides (since larvicides drown mosquito eggs).  These mosquitoes are prone to transmitting EEE and can travel up to a mile at a time. They are brown or tan with darker brown stripes on their legs and abdomen.

No matter what mosquitoes are most prevalent on your property, they all have the following in common:

  • They need water to breed
  • Only the female can bite
  • Their wings beat 300 to 600 times per second
  • They can fly about 1 to 1.5 miles per hour
  • They can smell humans from 60 feet away

And no matter the mosquito species, Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire can help you control them. We use a variety of methods to ensure that we eliminate mosquitoes no matter where they are in their lifecycle. This ensures that we are not only protecting you and your family, but we are also decreasing the mosquito population at large, which is extremely important with the arrival of spring and summer.  So don’t wait until you get bitten. Be proactive.  Give us a call today or come visit us at the NH State Home Show, booth #1202,  this weekend at the Radisson Center of Central New Hampshire to talk to us about protecting your family this season.  • (603) 373 – 8863 • email: sonh@mosquitosquad.com

Where Do Ticks and Mosquitoes Go for the Winter?

So it’s no secret that those of us who reside in the northern portions of the US love to go south for a break during the winter. If you’re retired, this break is probably a bit more of an extended stay, but even those of us who are in the flourish of our careers love a journey to a warmer climate. And who can blame us? Winters here are harsh. Birds do it; we should get to do it too. Recently, I returned from a rejuvenating trip to sunny Florida. And since I’m thinking of my favorite way to escape winter, I thought you might be interested in knowing how ticks and mosquitoes escape. Obviously, they don’t get away like birds and people, and knowing how and where they spend the winter helps Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire address your tick and mosquito problems in the spring, summer, and fall.

Mosquito Squad of SONH reminds you that all sizes of tick carry disease

All sizes of ticks can carry and spread Lyme disease.

Let’s begin with ticks. The most worrisome variety here in the area is the blacklegged tick (commonly called the deer tick). It is the foremost carrier of Lyme disease, transmits a host of other tick-bourne illnesses, and lives up to two years. The University of Rhode Island supports a large tick research and education program sponsored by the US Department of Agriculture and many health care groups. According to their research, ticks survive winter weather in much the same fashion as bears. They hibernate or become dormant. But they only do this when the ground is frozen; any other time, they are active. Ticks are very resilient creatures and capable of surviving harsh conditions in piles of fallen leaves and fallen, rotting logs.

Mosquitoes – those painful summertime nuisances and carriers of a swath of diseases including West Nile virus – are famous for how quickly they reproduce. Unlike the tick, the lifespan of a mosquito is relatively short, about a month. But they do survive winter, or we would never have to worry about them again. The Center for Vector Biology at Rutgers University maintains that

Mosquito eggs

Reducing the risk of contracting West Nile begins with eliminating areas where mosquitoes breed and lay their eggs.

many mosquitoes become dormant, like ticks, by entering hollow logs, animal burrows, or basements. Some mosquitoes that cannot survive by hibernation lay winter-hardy eggs, which hatch in the spring when temperatures rise in to the 60s, and some mosquitoes hibernate during their larval stage in the mud of swamps and ponds in order to survive the freeze.

So what does this mean for us? Remember that during the winter you can still combat the tick and mosquito populations by getting rid of fallen leaves and keeping the land around your home as dry as possible. Of course now that the weather is warming, it is time to begin planning for spring and summer tick and mosquito control. So call Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire today. We will work with you to set up a control plan that will help protect you, your family, and your pets all summer long.

As mosquitoes all around Southern New Hampshire test positive for WNV, anxiety continues to grow for residents

Blood filled female mosquito

West Nile Virus detected in Stratham, Sandown and Pelham, which has raised concern among NH residents.

As reports come in regards to mosquito-borne illness activity going on all around us, Southern New Hampshire residents are getting more anxious. The newest positive test results for West Nile Virus indicate the virus has been detected in two mosquito pools in Stratham, N.H., making it at least the third community in the state this summer where the virus has surfaced. This new location comes to us after the virus was also identifed last week in nearby Sandown, mosquito samples taken from a testing pool have tested positive for West Nile Virus. According to a report in the Eagle Tribune, the timing for this discovery couldn’t have gotten much worse. The positive test results that indicate the presence of WNV in the Sandown community came on the eve of the annual summer event “Old Home Days“, which has become a tradition in Sandown and the surrounding communities. With the festivities in town and with a lot of people being outside this past weekend. Officials said they would rather be safe than sorry and began emergency spraying for mosquitoes throughout the town prior to the event. Town officials said parts of the town are typically sprayed for mosquitoes, but the spraying is happening earlier in the year than usual, which seems to be the case all over the area as other positive test results continue to grow. Last year Sandown was the first town in the state to test positive for West Nile Virus.

WNV warning sign

In addition to utilizing a mosquito control and protection program at home, avoid areas where mosquitoes are prevalent.

The positive WNV results come in just a short time after two mosquito pools in Pelham also tested positive for the virus. Officials are quick to point out that mosquito season in New Hampshire reaches peak level around Labor Day. Mosquito activity in NH generally offers no relief until mid-October, and in keeping with years past sometimes mosquitoes will continue to be a source of concern until the arrival of the season’s first snow. With this in mind, it is important to remain vigilant in exercising safe mosquito practices at home and abroad.

In our region, human infections of mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis make top news during the summer months. As of yet, there have been no reports of Eastern Equine Encephalits for this season.

It can sometimes be hard to initially identify the presence of the disease because some cases are asymptomatic, which means the individual infected may show no symptoms of being ill. Being infected with West Nile Virus can also take those infected down two very different paths, one being the development of West Nile Fever and the other turning into West Nile Disease.

asian-tiger-mosquito

The day biting Asian tiger mosquito is a known vector of West Nile Virus.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), It is estimated that about 20% of people who become infected with WNV will develop West Nile fever. Symptoms include fever, headache, tiredness, and body aches, occasionally with a skin rash (on the trunk of the body) and swollen lymph glands. While the illness can be as short as a few days, even healthy people have reported being sick for several weeks. The symptoms of severe disease (also called neuroinvasive disease, such as West Nile encephalitis or meningitis or West Nile poliomyelitis) include headache, high fever, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, and paralysis. It is estimated that approximately 1 in 150 persons infected with the West Nile virus will develop a more severe form of disease. Serious illness can occur in people of any age; however people over age 50 and some immunocompromised persons (for example, transplant patients) are at the highest risk for getting severely ill when infected with WNV. Most people (about 4 out of 5) who are infected with West Nile virus will not develop any type of illness (an asymptomatic infection); however you cannot know ahead of time if you’ll get sick or not when infected.

Southern New Hampshire residents take heed; confirmed cases of WNV have already begun to show up in states closeby

Dread Skeeter for Mosquito Squad

Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire aims to keep residents informed about the risk of West Nile Virus in our region.

As of yet, Southern New Hampshire has not  had a confirmed case of West Nile Virus this season. Phew! Even though when it comes to West Nile Virus, no news is good news; our neighboring states have already begun to see positive test results for WNV in mosquitoes. The states nearest to the granite state that have tested positive are Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Vermont.  With this much activity around us, now is not the time to get lazy about staying on top of your mosquito control practices.

mosquito squad mosquito

We can keep your backyard free of these this season.

New Hampshire began testing mosquitoes for West Nile in the beginning of July. The reason for this is because it usually takes a few extra weeks for New Hampshire to heat up and become an “ideal” mosquito habitat – ideal for mosquitoes that is! The warmer weather mixed with our amount of abundant rainfall make the conditions perfect for mosquito infestations. According to an article published last week by NHPR New Hampshire News, Vector Borne Disease Surveillance Coordinator Whitney Howe states “We really can’t predict the season, both in terms of mosquito populations and activity and the potential risk for disease transmission, because there are so many environmental factors involved, But certainly mosquitoes do breed most proficiently in warm, wet environments.  So right now is prime mosquito season.”

WNV warning sign

In addition to utilizing a mosquito control and protection program at home, avoid areas where mosquitoes are prevalent.

Though it is good news that NH has not had a confirmation of WNV, it is crucial to not allow the lack of disease thus far give us a false sense of security. In looking back, New Hampshire did not confirm its first human case of West Nile Virus last season until mid-August, when a resident of Manchester became infected with the disease. Up until then, there had been no confirmed human cases of WNV in New Hampshire since 2010. West Nile Virus first appeared in the NH in 2000. Since then, four other humans have contracted the mosquito-borne virus. During the 2012 mosquito season other New Hampshire communities had confirmed cases of mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile without confirmed human cases, which were Nashua, Salem, Seabrook, North Hampton and Brentwood. These positive test results indicated that the potential for infection was present, and the Granite State was fortunate in not having more residents to become infected.

Mosquito Squad proves that fact is stranger than fiction when dealing with the werewolf of all mosquitoes; the Asian Tiger mosquito of NH

asian-tiger-mosquito

Take the tiger by the tail with Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire.

This year could quite possibly become known as the year of the mosquito because of the large and steady amount of rain much of the country has received thus far this season. When you combine the rainfall and the stagnate water it leaves behind with one of the mildest NH winters on record and the warm temperatures common this time of year, you get a recipe for disaster. Some mosquito experts are saying the Granite State is in for a challenging mosquito season due to the lack of a hard freeze which has helped mosquito species that winter under root systems thrive. Flooding from heavy rain has also created ideal breeding conditions for all species of mosquitoes. Research indicates that mosquitoes carrying a disease, such as West Nile virus, the virus can become amplified within the mosquito in warmer weather making mosquitoes like the Asian Tiger mosquito even more menacing this season.

mosquito larvae and eggs in standing water

This image show mosquito larvae and eggs present in overlooked standing rainwater.

The Asian Tiger mosquito is at the top of the list as one of the most feared mosquitoes in the NH region. All this summer rain is causing their populations to soar. This mosquito is a known carrier of West Nile Virus and is also a much more aggressive mosquito than its Culex mosquito cousins we are accustomed to. Asian Tiger mosquitoes are day feeding mosquitoes and are referred to as the “Forest Day mosquito” for this reason. While other mosquitoes are lurking in the shade waiting on night to settle to begin feeding, these mosquitoes are feeding throughout the day and in some cases swarming NH residents!  Asian Tiger mosquitoes do feed in the evening as well, but are more likely to do so during a full moon. The Asian’s aggressive demeanor, blood lust for humans, and likelihood to feed during a full moon make it one mosquito you’ll quickly want to eliminate from your yard.This video courtesy of Buzz 60 outlines the sum of all our fears when it comes to the Asian Tiger mosquito.

Where did they come from?

In 1985, the Asian Tiger Mosquito arrived in Houston, Texas inside a shipment of tires imported from Japan.  Since then, it has spread across the entire Southern US, and up the East coast to New Hampshire. The Asian Tiger mosquito has the ability to breed in miniscule amounts of water. It can perpetuate its brood in an area no larger than a discarded soda top or crevice in a tree, or even the corner of a flower pot. The Asian also lays eggs in loose or moist soil awaiting the arrival of a summer rain to activate incubation, so trying to control this mosquito can become a guessing game trying to figure out which areas will receive rain. When trying to prevent and control the presence of Asian Tiger mosquitoes around your home, it is very important to eradicate all items that could pool water. It is also important to have you property treated by a licensed mosquito professional to ensure these tough mosquitoes don’t take up residence in your backyard.

Don’t let the mosquitoes catch you this 4th of July. Catch them before they catch you!

enjoy the 4th of july holiday mosquito free with Mosquito Squad of SoNH

Don’t let mosquitoes ruin your 4th of July outdoor celebration.

The Fourth of July holiday is best spent outdoors. This particular holiday involves the outdoors more than any other special occasion we observe. Backyard barbecues, pool parties and enjoying s’mores and firecrackers (sparklers for the kids), are just a few of the many outdoor activities we will enjoy for the 4th.  As part of planning for the festivities, you probably have food, paper goods and decorations on your to-do list, but have you thought about the mosquito control?

Mosquito control should be at the top of every homeowners list when planning for the 4th of July holiday. It is quite easy to run out to the store to pick up more BBQ sauce if you run out while the celebration is going on, but realizing you forget to take care of the mosquitoes in the middle of the festivities is an entirely different scenario. Many great outdoor celebrations have been forced indoors or have ended abruptly because of the wrath of the backyard mosquito. Nowadays, you even have to protect yourself from mosquitoes that feed during the day, as well as the ones that bite from dusk until dawn.

asian-tiger-mosquito

Take the tiger by the tail with Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire.

The Asian tiger mosquito is a day feeding mosquito and is sure to wreak havoc on your outdoor celebration unless you take preventative measures. This mosquito does not play by the same rules as other mosquitoes and will strike anytime, anywhere and packs a bite that is much more painful than that of the average backyard mosquito. Asian tiger mosquitoes have even been known to swarm their hosts when feeding mimicking the behavior of a wasp or bee. These menaces are also very good at spreading a number of viral pathogens including St. Louis Encephalitis and West Nile Virus.

Mosquitoes suck

Mosquitoes suck, and so do the diseases they carry!
