"Mosquito Season Has Gotten A Month Longer In Some Places"

"More than two-thirds of U.S. locations studied now have longer mosquito seasons, research from Climate Central finds."

"As the climate warms, mosquito-swatting season is getting longer in many parts of the country.

Mosquitoes require warm, humid conditions between about 50 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

“Certain places like the Pacific coast, Ohio Valley, and Northeast are experiencing more of these mosquito days in the present than they did 20 or 40 years ago,” says Rebeca de Jesús Crespo of Louisiana State University.

In a recent analysis, the nonprofit Climate Central looked at four decades of weather data across 242 locations in the U.S."
