With the hot, humid weather of the summer comes mosquitoes, and the Roswell area has been given the dubious honor being ranked as the top mosquito city in the United States. This comes as little surprise as the city has faced mosquito problems for years during the June, July and August months of the year.
The Cause of the Problem
Atlanta finds itself plagued by this nuisance year after for a very simple reason: the area is hot and damp, the favorite conditions of mosquito larvae. When mosquitoes lay their eggs in damp areas, the larvae are encouraged to develop more quickly, reaching maturity in record time. More quickly maturing larvae means more adult mosquitos, both of which lead to greater mosquito populations across the Atlanta area. If there is a sudden increase in rainfall, the warm temperatures and area humidity make puddled areas that mosquitoes just love to use for their eggs, and the cycle intensifies.
Issues Caused by Mosquitos
First of all, mosquitoes area nuisance to anyone who enjoys the outdoors, especially in the twilight hours. Hunters, fishers and rural homeowners typically find the annoyance of mosquitoes the greatest because they spend so much time outside. Livestock and other wild animals face the onslaught of these pests as well. Mosquito bites can be painful and itchy, and they can take days to clear up.
In addition to being nuisances, mosquitoes are known for carrying dangerous diseases such as malaria, yellow fever and dengue fever. Recent health concerns have focused more on West Nile Virus, St. Louis Encephalitis and Easter Equine Encephalitis. When potentially deadly diseases like these are at stake, it is no surprise that concerns about mosquitoes in Atlanta are at an all-time high.
