Bites, itching, and annoyance are the least of our concerns. Particularly in the summer months when you enjoy the outdoors, protect yourself from harmful pests. Mosquito control is one of the important ways to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your entire community in the spring and summer. Read on to learn why.
While mosquito bites are certainly annoying, their real danger lies in their ability to transmit dangerous diseases. Around the world, mosquitos provide a vector for diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya,
and dengue fever. In the US, they can pose a risk of encephalitis as well as West Nile and Zika virus transmission. Mosquito control can help you avoid serious health complications from illnesses such as these.
Mosquito bites can take a lot of the fun out of outdoor activities, but the annoyance and itching can do much more than spoil summer fun. Mosquito activity can also reduce productivity when laboring outdoors, threaten wild animal populations, and even hinder property values. When you practice mosquito control on your property, you’re helping not only your family but your entire community get more enjoyment from local outdoor spaces.
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, and other domesticated animals can become seriously ill after being bitten by an infected mosquito.
