Diseases Transmitted By Mosquitoes
Malaria is perhaps the most widely known and deadly infection that becomes spread to humans by these flying nuisances. Female Anopheles mosquitoes carry the malaria parasite, and some of them even cause heartworms in dogs, while others transmit different illnesses between hosts. Most of the time, instances of contracting malaria come from other parts of the world, but mosquito control can prevent these occurrences from becoming brought to light in our community.
Asian Tiger mosquitoes are carriers of the Zika Virus. More severe symptoms typically present themselves in pregnant women, babies, or the elderly and can include fever, joint pain, headache, rashes, and more. Most of our local species require a substantial amount of water to lay their eggs, but the Asian Tiger Mosquito commands very little to reproduce, and the population can get out of control in a hurry. They are of black coloring with distinct white stripes resembling those of a tiger, hence the name, the Asian Tiger Mosquito.
The West Nile Virus is another disease that becomes transmitted to various hosts by female mosquitoes. Symptoms may present themselves in the form of severe fever, meningitis, and encephalitis. The infected mosquitoes feed on multiple types of birds that carry the disease and spread it to the next host as they feed upon them. Horses are also known to become infected, and it can even lead to the death of these beloved livestock. Filling in low spots in the yard that hold water after it rains, using mosquito repellents, and using our mosquito control service will help keep your health intact and eliminate the threat.
