Why Choose Tuxedo Mosquito Control?

Mosquito Bites Can Spread Dangerous Diseases

Both male and female mosquitoes can carry human pathogens, but only female mosquitoes bite. Before a female mosquito lays eggs in your yard by the hundreds, she may decide to bite you. For this reason, adult mosquito control is essential to prevent disease transmission. Here are some diseases you can get from mosquitoes and which mosquitoes spread them.

  • Culex mosquitoes, often called house mosquitoes, are primarily responsible for the spread of West Nile virus. While less than 300 people die from West Nile virus each year in the United States, even one death is too many. Culex mosquitoes also spread St. Louis, Japanese, Western equine, and Eastern equine encephalitis, all of which can cause potentially life-threatening brain swelling.
  • Aedes mosquitoes, like the yellow fever mosquito and tiger mosquito, spread hazardous viruses, such as Zika, yellow, dengue, and Chikungunya virus. None of these viruses are endemic to the United States and only present a threat during outbreaks.
  • Anopheles mosquitoes spread malaria. In 2020, malaria led to an estimated 241 million clinical episodes, with 627,000 deaths. The number of deaths reported in the United States is minimal as malaria is not endemic. Deaths only occur during outbreaks. 

When weighing the threat mosquitoes represent, it is essential to know all the facts. Here are a few not-well-known facts to consider.

  • Do you know that mosquitoes can give heartworms to your pet? Dogs are the most impacted by this mosquito-borne microorganism.
  • Do you know it is possible to have a mosquito-borne disease but no symptoms? Even if you or someone in your home is asymptomatic, mosquitoes on your property can contract a disease and transmit it. The next person to contract the disease may then develop symptoms.
  • Do you know that mosquito-borne diseases can have minor symptoms? Even the worst viruses can have mild symptoms mistaken for the flu or common cold. 
  • Reported cases usually occur when hospitalization is required. Most Atlanta residents are not aware of how widespread or common mosquito-related sickness really is.

In light of how mosquitoes can make you sick, isn't it best to ensure you have effective mosquito control? Is it also not best to have mosquito control that targets adult mosquitoes? There is a place for natural mosquito control, but it is not the best way for homeowners in Atlanta to deal with mosquitoes. Why? Because mosquito control isn't about finding the right product. It is a mixture of professional inspections, eco-friendly products, appropriate material applications, appropriately scheduled treatments, or the installation of misting systems. We'll get to this in a moment. First, let's talk about that elephant in the room.
