A primer about mosquitoes
Mosquitoes are small flying insects that feed on the blood of larger organisms for nourishment. In most species, only the females are ectoparasites (meaning they use the blood of other organisms to stay alive), while the males typically feed on nectar and plant juices. A mosquito bite will typically leave a small red bump on the surface of the skin, which can cause mild to moderate itching and irritation for a week or more. Due to their blood-consuming nature, mosquitoes have been known to carry and transmit a number of diseases including: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus, and other arboviruses. To help those on your property stay safe, it is highly advisable to take steps to mosquito-proof your yard and areas around your house. Read on for tips from our pest control experts.
