Mosquito numbers on the North Shore predicted to be high due in part to the aftermath of Recent Hurricanes and Tropical Storm

Hurricane Sandy

Almost 8 months after Hurricane Sandy hit Mass. we are still feeling the after effects.

It has been almost 8 months since Hurricane Sandy brought her rage to the North Shore and surrounding areas. Some area residents memories,  particularly in hard hit Pickering Wharf, Winter Island and Beverly,  include mental images of far-reaching 30 foot waves which left an aftermath of destruction and flooding behind. It seems like just yesterday North Shore residents were left to pick up the pieces of the devastation caused by Sandy, and once again, the worst storm to hit our region in over 70 years is still cause for concern.

High winds, flooding and large waves were forced inland during Hurricane Sandy's terror in October of 2102.

The impetus of the concern centers on the debris which still lingers from Hurricane Sandy which could boost mosquito populations this summer. On top of this destruction, record amount of rainfall from Tropical Storm Andrea this weekend, and the left over debris still present from Hurricane Sandy makes the perfect scenario for mosquitoes to breed and thrive.  The predicted increased mosquito numbers include several species linked to mosquito-borne illness such as West Nile Virus.

carefully inspect their property for storm debris that may have been overlooked to prevent mosquito breeding. Mosquito Squad of the North Shore reminds North Shore residents that inspecting your property to ensure it less attractive to mosquitoes is a crucial step in reducing mosquito numbers.  It is a good idea to make these inspections a habit even in the best situations to reduce the risk of mosquitoes and mosquito borne illness. Mosquito Squad has put together a video outlining the 5t’s of mosquito control. This trendy video is set to music with a comical plot, but the subject matter should be taken seriously to help keep you and your family safe this season.
