When people think of dangerous pests they often think of gators or poisonous snakes. But the world’s most dangerous pest is not nearly as imposing and is also far more common. We’re talking about mosquitoes, and they can be active all year long in warm climates like ours. Knowing how to spot them and prevent them on your property may just save lives.
Mosquito Dangers & Traits
With their long noses and buzzing wings, mosquitoes are a common nuisance to have buzzing around the air, especially as the weather warms up. But Mosquitoes are more than just a bug to swat away -- they pose some serious health risks.
Because they are parasitic pests, feeding off of the blood of the animals they land on, mosquitoes are legendary spreaders of disease. Here are just some of the health risks associated with mosquitoes:
Pandemics: Some of the worst outbreaks in human history have been attributed to mosquitoes, including the most recent Ebola outbreak.
Animal sickness: Mosquitoes spread parasites and diseases from bloodstream to bloodstream, which doesn’t just include people. Parasites normally unique to dogs and horses can easily be introduced onto your property from mosquitoes.
Proliferation: Because they pose such health risks, controlling mosquito populations in areas of famine and disease is a global concern. Since they can reproduce quickly, a mosquito infestation in high-contact areas can quickly aid the spread of sickness.
Mosquito Prevention For Your Property
Their bites are serious stuff, not just an itchy annoyance, but you’re probably more concerned with what you can do to keep mosquitoes off of your property. The following are easy and important steps to take to stay protected:
Landscaping: All kinds of flying insects, including wasps and mosquitoes, look for shaded areas to rest and wait for food to come along. Reducing harborage points by keeping grass trimmed and limbs/bushes cut back to manageable lengths will benefit your yard.
Nets & Screens: While you can’t put a net around your whole yard, you can protect outdoor seating areas, and the entryways into your home or business, with screens and nets that will keep mosquitoes out.
Lawn treatments: Professional solutions are the most effective way to eliminate mosquitoes from your property and to keep them away year-round.
