Are Mosquitoes Dangerous?

More than just a nuisance, mosquito infestations can actually pose a health risk to humans. This is because they have been known to transmit several serious illnesses to humans, including Zika virus, West Nile virus, and many forms of encephalitis. Affecting pregnant women, Zika virus can lead to a wide variety of birth defects in children. There is currently no vaccine or medication to reduce the effects of this illness. West Nile virus is a very serious condition that can cause fatal neurological conditions in people who contract the illness.

How Can I Prevent Mosquito Infestations?

To protect your family from health risks, there are a few simple measures you can take to make your property less attractive to mosquito populations. The following tips can help you prevent mosquito infestations:

  • Remove standing water from your property. This includes clogged gutters, pet water dishes, and overflowing planters.
  • Trim back your landscaping. Heavy vegetation provides a cool, damp respite for mosquitoes, and pruning back bushes may discourage infestations.
  • Remove yard waste. If you have built up grass clippings or leaves in your yard, this can provide mosquitoes with the perfect spot to breed.
  • Hire professional mosquito control. A reliable company will identify hot spots around your property and implement measures to reduce activity and prevent future infestations.
