Mosquitoes Spread Diseases

What is the most dangerous creature on earth? That tiny, little flying pest, the mosquito. The mosquito is the most deadly creature known to man. Can you imagine? Historically the mosquito has spread diseases that have killed thousands of people, and believe it or not, they continue to spread these diseases today. From Malaria to the Chikungunya virus, mosquitoes are making an impact on the health of our world population. Understanding mosquitoes and how to control them is the key to keeping them away from you and your loved ones.

The female mosquito typically feeds on nectar from plants. She will, however, bite humans for blood to nourish her young. That tiny mosquito bite usually only leaves a red itchy mark on your skin and that’s about the extent of it but, those bites have the capability to spread more and more diseases like West Nile virus, yellow fever, malaria, dengue fever and encephalitis.

It is nearly impossible to completely eliminate mosquitoes from your property. Mosquitoes can fly up to 3 miles to find a new breeding ground. They breed in any form of stagnant water, from a mud puddle to a bird bath. They lay around 100 to 300 eggs at a time. This quickly creates a whole new mosquito population in your back yard overnight.

The number one way to reduce the mosquito population on your property is to eliminate any stagnant water sources. If you have a kiddie pool or bird bath make sure to clean the water out and change it daily. Mosquitoes breed quickly and can infest your property without you noticing until it is too late.
