As warm weather starts to move in across the country, several regions are now reporting an increase in mosquito and tick activity. A recent online research study conducted between January 2018 and May 2019 by Advanced Symbolics Inc. using a representative sample of 274,500 Americans revealed ticks and mosquitoes are becoming increasingly problematic across the country, each experiencing a spike of 11.4 percent and 9.4 percent, respectively, from just April to May 2019. With summer now right around the corner, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) is urging the public to take preventative measures to protect against the health threats posed by these biting pests.
