Mosquitoes – Those are Not Love Bites
It seems like they are everywhere, especially in your room late at night when you’re trying to sleep. One mosquito in your room is an annoyance. Thousands of them in your yard are a nightmare.
One fact that most people don’t know about mosquitoes is that they are responsible for more deaths than all wars combined. Through malaria, West Nile disease, and many other ailments, mosquitoes are the deadliest creatures on the planet.
While malaria is rare in the US, West Nile has been gaining ground and other diseases are also on the rise. This doesn’t account for the number of secondary infections caused by scratching.
Some facts you should know:
- Mosquitoes exist on every continent except Antarctica.
- Mosquitoes prefer standing water to breed in, but they don’t need more than a small puddle to increase in number.
- Citronella candles and personal bug spray are often not effective repellants.
- The key to successfully eliminating mosquitoes is to find their breeding space and stop them there.
- In cases, where the breeding place is not accessible, a powerful but safe insecticide will help to eliminate them.
- The only way to truly get mosquitoes under control is to call in a professional.
