Mosquitos are a unique insect that is extremely sensitive to its environment. This causes an extreme fluctuation in mosquito populations from season to season. Summer mosquitos seem to be the most annoying in most cases. So you might ask yourself, why is summertime so welcoming to these pests?
Mosquitos are cold-blooded insects that keep their body temperature levels based on the environment they are in. Mosquitos tend to prefer their habitats based on two key factors. Heat and water! If you live in a state that has mosquito welcoming climates as mentioned, then you will most likely know how seriously attracted mosquitos are to heat and water.
If you live somewhere where it more cold and dry then you’re in luck! Mosquitos have a lot of difficulties surviving in harsher climates. Colder and more dry climates will have much lesser mosquito populations versus a hot and more humid climate.
