Mosquito Uptick After Rainy Summer

Mosquito Uptick After Rainy Summer

Sick of flooding rains and spotted lanternflies? Add one more to the list as Mother Nature has unleashed another seasonal plague to ruin this year’s last warm days in North Jersey: the mosquito.

Blame it on one of the wettest summers in recorded history, which has extended into the fall.

Morris County Mosquito Control, for one, has received more than 1,000 complaints of mosquito infestation since the beginning of the month.

That’s about 10 times the usual number of mosquito calls at this time of year, said Kris McMorland, director of Morris County Mosquito Control.

“We should be winding down, but coming off the super-wet summer and two hurricanes in a row, it’s monumental,” McMorland said. “If you live near one of the river systems or tributaries where there was mass flooding, that’s where we are having problems with mosquitoes.”

Those bug-infested acres include portions of the Rockaway and Passaic river valleys in Long Hill, Lincoln Park, Montville and Denville. Towns bordering swampy Troy Meadows, including Parsippany and East Hanover, also are among the worst-hit towns, McMorland said.

Three months of rain fell in two weeks, he said: “Henri never dried down, and then Ida landed on top. Lincoln Park had 10 inches.”

Sinclair is the person assigned to the building I'm living in and he is excellent! He makes sure I have everything I need to combat the ever growing rodent issues in NYC. He even helped get the heat turned on in my building when we didn't have any.

Sinclair did a great job at our house today! He was on time and very courteous. We have been using UltraPro for a few years now and our cricket problem has disappeared. Highly recommend.

Sinclair did a great job at our house! We had the beginnings of a mouse migration into the house, and UltraPro has been very responsive. Above all, their treatment is working, and it seems that the problem is pretty much solved.
