Mosquito Populations Pose Threat To Patio-Goers In Owings, MD
As we ease into September, it’s safe to say that patio season is in full swing. Now’s the time for homeowners to enjoy their backyards, and for restaurateurs to charm guests with outdoor dining experiences. It’s a great time of year, especially for those businesses whose indoor dining capacities were greatly reduced by COVID-19 safety restrictions.
But in some parts of Owings, MD, booming mosquito populations are spoiling patio season, buzzing around and biting guests in record numbers, making it tough to relax or enjoy a meal outdoors. And with the first confirmed human case of the West Nile Virus in Maryland announced earlier this year, the threat of mosquito-borne disease cannot be overstated.
In fact, according to Michael Raupp, entomologist and professor emeritus at the University of Maryland, we can expect “billions of mosquitoes breeding” this year, with heat and rain conditions creating the perfect storm for population growth. This echoes reports from PestWorld.org, the official consumer education website of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), which predicted that the northeast corridor of the US would have “a higher than normal risk level for an overabundance of mosquitoes in 2021.”
“In my backyard right now, I’ve got a lot of Culex mosquitoes that are biting me whenever I go out,” Mr. Raupp said in a report for the Independent. “So it’s not time to put our guard down. The mosquitoes are here.”
But don’t despair—there’s plenty you can do to protect your patio space and make the most of the season. In addition to eliminating standing water sources, dressing in long sleeves, and spraying yourself down with DEET, why not call in the sheriff?
