Diseases Carried by Mosquitoes in New Jersey


Summer may be just about over, but that doesn’t mean mosquitoes are about to disappear for the season. Here in New Jersey, the mosquito season can run into October. Until our temperatures drop consistently below 50 degrees, we’ll have to deal with these pesky summer pests.

This means we’ll also have to be on our guard against the diseases carried by mosquitoes. For a deeper understanding of these potentially deadly diseases, it’s good to consult your Sea Girt exterminator over at Allison Pest Control.

There are seven main varieties of mosquito-borne diseases in New Jersey: Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Saint Louis Encephalitis, West Nile Encephalitis, La Crosse Encephalitis, Chikungunya, Dengue, and Zika. While these diseases are not widespread, they are encountered by our Sea Girt exterminator on a regular basis.

Your Sea Girt exterminator is equipped to deal with mosquitoes that carry these diseases. Contact Allison Pest Control to set up a time for a free assessment of your property. By establishing a proper plan of control, you can take back your yard and live without the fear of the discomfort and diseases transmitted by these pests.

All of the diseases mentioned above are preventable if you eliminate the source. However, once contracted they have a high mortality rate. The best solution is to seek out your local Sea Girt exterminator and destroy the problem before it can grow into regret. Allison Pest Control has been in business since 1917 and has a long-standing reputation of excellence in the Sea Girt community. Contact us!
