The Future of Mosquito Habitats

As the poles and the planet begin to warm, the habitats that are suitable for mosquitoes are beginning to change. Mosquitoes thrive in warm, tropical climates. As the temperatures rise across the globe, regions that were once too cold for mosquitoes will turn into ideal habitats for mosquitoes. On the other hand, regions that were once the perfect climate for mosquitoes will become too warm for them. The map below shows the projected change in suitable habitats for mosquitoes by 2050. While many parts of the world are not expected to see much of a change, there are several regions, such as North and South America, that are predicted to see a drastic shift in their mosquito population. So, what exactly does this mean for us? This means more exposure to mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Nile Virus and the Zika Virus.  Diseases that were once confined to Africa and Asia are now spreading to places like North America due to the climate change that is occurring. The good news is that since we have knowledge of this, we can prepare. One thing that is going to become a necessity for relief from mosquitoes in the next few years is the DynaTrap. While bug sprays and wearables may provide temporary relief, the DynaTrap is the most simple and effective solution for all of your mosquito problems!
