With so many unusual weather patterns across New England the past few seasons, AllGreen has kept up with mosquito control concerns in Massachusetts to help keep our customers informed and educated. Residents are growing more worried about the implications of a wet spring, and it turns out, they have an excellent reason to be. New England should expect a hot and wet summer this year. Unfortunately, those are excellent conditions for breeding mosquitoes. That’s why we offer mosquito control in Stoughton, MA, and the surrounding area.


Last Summer Was a Wet One

You probably remember that last summer was a wet one. We got rained out on both Memorial Day and Fourth of July weekends. According to CBS News, the summer of 2021 was Boston’s fourth wettest on record. July alone was the second wettest on record. We had measurable rainfall on 19 out of the 31 days in July.


This Summer Could Be the Same

And now it’s looking like we could have a repeat of some of that rain this summer, combined with above average temperatures. As reported by Boston’s National Public Radio affiliate, WBUR, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) projects a 50-60% chance of higher than normal temperatures. Pair that with a 33-40% chance of higher than average rainfall, and we’re shaping up for a mosquito-friendly summer.


What It Means for Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes thrive in the wet. They look for areas of stagnant water to lay their eggs, and with a lot of rain, they won’t have to look very hard. On top of that, they thrive in temperatures above 80 degrees. It can get too hot for mosquitoes, which is why you’ll notice that they bite less on very hot days. However, the diseases they carry are more active and more transmissible at high temperatures.
