As we enter June that means barbeques, outdoor events, and fun in the sun. Unfortunately, it also means mosquitoes and ticks. One question that seems to be coming up quite frequently lately is whether or not these pests can transmit COVID-19 to humans. At this time, the CDC says that they do not have any data to suggest it is spread by mosquitoes and ticks. All information available to them still indicates that COVID-19 spreads from person to person. This past April Pest World published a similar article stating something similar. The National Pest Management Association’s chief entomologist made a similar statement, “At this time, there is currently no evidence to suggest that pests like mosquitoes and ticks can be implicated in the transmission of COVID-19.” He did, however, go on to say that, these pests are able to transmit other serious diseases that include West Nile Virus and Lyme disease. Although they do not transmit COVID-19, you still need to protect yourself and your family from these pests.
