You can’t spend an evening outside in NJ when it’s warm out without getting at least one mosquito bite, and that’s no surprise. NJ really does have 63 different mosquito species, which gives NJ pest control services plenty to do in summer.
62 Residents, 1 Visitor
Sixty-two of the mosquito species sampled in NJ are resident species that stick around during the winter months. Only one species, Aedes aegypti, goes elsewhere when the temperatures drop in NJ. This is good news since this species is responsible for spreading yellow fever, dengue, and other infectious diseases.
Differences in Distribution
Although you’ll find 63 different species in NJ, they’re not evenly distributed. In fact, only some of these species are found all over the state. Several species have a very limited distribution and are only found in a few parts of the state. That still leaves quite a few species that are around to bite throughout the summer months.
Since certain species can spread West Nile virus and other diseases, it’s important to keep their populations to a minimum. You can do your part by getting rid of standing water in your yard, so mosquitoes have fewer places to breed and build their populations.
