Throughout history, no insect has been a more significant contributor to human disease, discomfort, and death than the mosquito. Mosquitoes are a serious threat to human health and comfort, and their impact ranges from the transmission of viruses to annoying biting and itching.
As the temperatures continue to rise and summer inches its way into full effect, it’s crucial to protect yourself and your family from harmful pests. Mosquito control is one of the most important ways to protect yourself, your family, and your community during the warm months.
Protect Your Health
Mosquitoes have harassed humans for centuries, spreading disease and death to millions. Around the world, mosquitos provide a vector for diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, and dengue fever. In the United States, mosquitos have caused encephalitis as well as West Nile and Zika virus transmission.
The World Health Organization reports that more than 50% of the world’s population is presently at risk from mosquito-borne diseases. Avoiding serious health complications from these illnesses begins with effective mosquito control and prevention.
Enjoy the Great Outdoors
Nobody wants to cut short their time soaking up the sun, or drench themselves in bug spray every time they step foot outdoors. Worrying about fighting off mosquitoes and painful itching can take a lot of the fun out of outdoor activities. And if you enjoy outdoor entertaining or outdoor dining? Nothing ends the get-together more quickly than bug bites. Especially when spending time outside with family, mosquitos can be quite the pest.
Mosquito activity can reduce your productivity when doing yardwork or gardening outdoors, threaten wild animal populations, and even hinder property values. By practicing mosquito control on your property, you’re helping not only your family but your entire community get more enjoyment from local outdoor spaces. It’s a win-win for all.
Keep Your Furry Friend Safe
When it comes to enjoying the outdoors, mosquitoes aren’t only bothersome to you and your family members. Mosquito bites can irritate and spread certain diseases to your pets too. It’s important to be aware of the potential dangers mosquito bites can have for your pets.
Mosquito bites can also expose your pets to heartworms and other dangerous parasites as well as potentially severe allergic reactions and infections. Dogs, cats, horses, birds, rabbits, birds, rodents and other domesticated animals can become seriously ill after being bitten by a mosquito that carries infection or disease. That’s why mosquito control is so important.
