Warmer Temperatures Means Mosquitoes Arrive Early

The recent warmer temperatures experienced in the Triangle are a much needed relief from the bitter North Carolina winter. But this early spring also gives mosquito populations a head start, so you could face a lot more mosquitoes than usual in the coming months.

Making matters more serious, mosquitoes last year brought the risk of contracting the Zika virus with them. This virus could lead to serious birth defects—a recent study published in the New York Times reported that American mothers infected with the Zika virus were 20 times as likely to give birth to babies with birth defects as mothers who gave birth two years before the epidemic.
