MOSQUITO CONTROL & PREVENTION
Mosquitos are a nuisance and keep many families from enjoying their backyards. Unfortunately ,these pests are not just a nuisance, they can be a health hazard for your family and pets.
Contrary to popular belief that mosquitoes only come out looking for a “human meal” at night and early morning, there are other conditions around your home that can make them an all day nuisance and health hazard. Mosquitos breed primarily in stagnant water- from bird baths, low areas and faulty grades that retain water, even puddles that have accumulated from rainfall.
West Nile Virus is most commonly transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds. Infected mosquitoes can then spread the virus to humans and animals. West Nile Virus can cause febrile illness, encephalitis ( inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the of the lining of the brain and spinal cord.
Zika Virus is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint paint, and conjunctivitis. The illness is normally very mild therefore people may not even realize they are infected. HOWEVER, Zika Virus infection during pregnancy can cause a serious birth defect called microcephaly, as well as other severe fetal brain defects.
