Mosquitoes are More Than Just a Nuisance
Mosquitoes are beginning to show up as the warmer weather stays longer each day. They are one of the biggest nuisances that humans ever come in contact with. Their presence will ruin any backyard barbecue, little league baseball game or front porch luncheon. Swatting constantly at mosquitoes all day or night is the last thing you want to be doing. If you are brave enough to take on their annoying buzzing around then you will most likely be forced to also deal with getting bit. A mosquito bite may seem like nothing more than an irritating welt on your skin that will not stop itching. However, a bite from a mosquito contains more health risks than we tend to consider.
Disease Transmitting Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes can act as a transporter for many disease causing viruses and parasites. Mosquitoes that are infected with these viruses and parasites have the ability to pass them on from person to person. Diseases that mosquitoes have been known to infect humans with include yellow fever, dengue fever, and Malaria. More recently, West Nile Virus and chikungunya have been detected among mosquitoes that transfer the disease to humans and livestock. It is important to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes as much as possible.
Itchy Mosquito Bites
A mosquito bite will often leave an itching, red and swelled up area of skin where the mosquito has feasted on your blood. Immediate reactions develop within a few minutes of a bite and usually last for a few hours. Some people have a hyper sensitive reaction and require more intensive treatment. Luckily, there are a few steps you can take to avoid mosquitoes and keep them away from your home to protect you and your family from their potentially dangerous bites.
Mosquitoes thrive on standing water, so do an inspection around your property to eliminate anything that water can collect in. This includes buckets, unused flower pots or empty garbage bins. These can all be turned upside down and will help eliminate the presence of mosquitoes near your home. Standing water gives mosquitoes the ability to multiply, causing you even more annoyance with these insects.
