Is Mosquito Control a Necessity?
We all love spring! With the warmer weather, we can start spending more time outdoors again, having BBQ’s with friends and family, playing games outside with our kids, and sitting out on the porch enjoying the fresh air, among other things. Too bad those pesky mosquitoes enjoy spring as well. So, is mosquito control really a necessity? No, not really, but it sure does make the time we spend outdoors with the family a whole lot more enjoyable.
Mosquitoes hang around outside making life miserable for people. The female mosquito is the one that “bites” because she is extracting blood in order to nurture her eggs. Male and female mosquitoes really eat sugars from plants, nectar, and honeydew. They are greyish looking with narrow bodies and thin long legs. They mainly hang around backyards looking for water to lay eggs on in places like ponds, gutters, containers, wheelbarrows, and other items that have collected rainwater.
Mosquitoes are very dangerous and responsible for transmitting a variety of diseases like the West Nile virus, malaria, Zika virus, and dengue fever. They can also carry a virus called chikungunya that can cause a fever, rash, headache, and joint pain. Mosquitoes don’t only affect humans, dogs can contract canine heartworm and it can be lethal.
