Remember the good old days, when everything you came into contact with didn’t cause you some type of harm? You didn’t have to worry about what you ate or what may be lurking in your own yard. Now it seems everything brings some kind of threat. Every week we hear about a new food that’s suddenly bad for us, or a new disease that can be transmitted by a common backyard pest. Mosquitoes are some of the major offenders. That’s why homeowners trust Schendel to eliminate mosquito threats.
What Threats Mosquitoes Cause
We all know that mosquitoes
produce itchy bites that drive us crazy, but they can do a lot more than that. For insects so small, mosquitoes can actually be quite dangerous. They transmit many diseases and illnesses, and believe it or not, they are considered the deadliest animal
in the world.
Here in the United States, mosquitoes are responsible for the transmission of West Nile virus, Zika virus, dengue fever, and malaria, to name just a few. Receiving a bite from a mosquito is no longer a simple annoyance, it can be dangerous.
When Mosquitoes are Active
Mosquitoes can’t handle the cold weather of winter, but once temperatures warm up in spring, they’ll be back in action. Summer is their favorite season because they thrive during the hottest months of the year.
On a day-to-day basis, mosquitoes are most active in the early morning and evening. They spend the hottest hours of the day resting in shaded areas.
