Mosquitoes in West Chester: More than Just a Nuisance?

June 21, 2017

When spring and summer first arrive, mosquitoes haven’t been on our radar. Unless they begin buzzing in our ears and feeding on our blood, we tend to forget about them. Mosquitoes are a pesky nuisance when the temperature rises, but mosquitoes in West Chester are more than a summer nuisance. You should be concerned about mosquitoes all of the time.

Dangers of Mosquitoes

Female mosquitoes need your blood to nourish their eggs. If you are outside, they will find you. The CO2 emitted when you breathe and the smell of your skin when you are outside attracts mosquitoes. There is not much you can do about that, so you have to protect yourself. You are always a target for mosquitoes, and so is everyone else around you. That creates a dangerous problem.

Mosquitoes are the most dangerous insect in the world because they are a main source for dangerous human diseases, and they spread these deadly diseases across the globe.

Diseases spread by mosquitoes are:

  • Yellow fever

  • Malaria

  • Zika virus

  • West Nile virus

  • Dengue fever

  • Many more

According to the World Health Organization, half of the world’s population is at risk for diseases spread by mosquitoes.
