Problems Summer Mosquitoes Bring To Families In The Southeast
April 24, 2019
For many people, summer is their favorite season of the year. Beach lovers enjoy the constant hot weather, kids love summer for the break from school it brings. However, whether you love summer or not, it is fair to assume you dislike at least one thing about it, mosquitoes. These pesky insects make whatever area they decide to infest less enjoyable. From camping to fishing to just sitting on your porch. Wherever mosquitoes are, trouble and annoyance follow.
Why Mosquitoes Are Both Annoying and Destructive
Most people when they think about mosquitoes just think about how annoying they are. When you go for an evening hike and mosquitoes find you on the trail, it is not too difficult to get frustrated. Obviously, mosquitoes are annoying. What is less obvious is that mosquitoes are also dangerous. We know what you may be thinking: “Aren’t mosquitoes only a threat in other countries?” Although it is true that they are a bigger threat in other countries because of the lack of medical access and wider spread diseases, they are still a threat here in the US. For instance, if a mosquito bites a person with Dengue virus and then proceeds to bite you, you run the risk of contracting that same disease. Some of the most common diseases mosquitoes spread include.
■ Chikungunya Virus
■ Dengue Virus
■ West Nile Virus
■ Yellow Fever
■ Zika Virus
Although the transmission of these diseases is less common here in the US, there is still a risk. For this reason, we recommend that people take as many precautions as possible when it comes to mosquitoes.
Why Homes In The Southeast Are Particularly At Risk
When you live in an ecosystem as hot and humid as it is here in the southeast, mosquitoes are more than just a part of life; they are a big part of it. This is because mosquitoes need two major things to breed, survive, and thrive. Those things are moisture and heat. These conditions make a huge difference in mosquito populations, and because we have both of these things in abundance here, mosquito populations often soar. This leaves us with a major need: a need for professional mosquito control.
