It’s summer, so it’s to be expected that you’ll pick up a few bug bites. They may appear as raised red bumps on your arms and legs, or you may find them in especially uncomfortable places, like your ankles, behind your ears and even your stomach. No matter where you have them, bug bites can be uncomfortable. But do you know what’s been biting you?
Before we know it, mosquitoes will be making their presence known in Topeka, Kansas City and across the Midwest. Mosquitoes generally come out in the spring when there are sufficient breeding grounds, aka stagnant water. Not only are mosquitoes a serious threat because of the miserable bites they can leave on our skin but they are also of concern due to the fact that their bites are like tiny injections into the skin. West Nile virus is perhaps one of the most noted mosquito-transmitted illnesses and just one of the reasons why now is the time to prepare your backyard for the upcoming mosquito season.
In recent weeks there have been lots of news stories on West Nile Virus and with good reason. As more people continue to be infected, there is a lot of fear and worry on how people get the illness and how they can protect themselves from West Nile Virus, commonly abbreviated to WNV. The good news is that there are many ways in which people can avoid WNV and the KS pest control pros would like to share some helpful information.
Summer is all about being outside and taking advantage of the longer, warmer days. But putting a serious damper to our summer fun are mosquitoes who are notorious for dropping in uninvited. Many cookouts and outdoor events have been disrupted when mosquitoes decide to join the get together. And not only are they a major nuisance pest but mosquitoes can also carry serious diseases which make them a pest threat to watch out for this summer.
