With summer in full swing and families utilizing their outdoors more often, it is important to keep you and your family protected against anything that can cause harm, mosquitoes are on that list. Mosquitoes are not just irritants but carry many diseases, from Zika and EEE to West Nile Virus and even heartworm.
In a recent article by KSI.com in Utah, they have already found West Nile Virus in 114 mosquito pools. While there haven’t been any human cases yet, that number is big enough to express the need for a proper mosquito control plan. According to the CDC, there have been positive West Nile virus cases in humans in 7 states!
West Nile is almost only transmitted from mosquito to human through a bite. In most cases, there are no symptoms or slight fever, but there could be more serious symptoms, and in some instances can lead to death.
As long as the warm temperatures are here and there is water around your property, mosquitoes will be there. At Mosquito Authority we make it our mission to protect you, your family (including the four-legged ones), and your friends from the hundreds of diseases mosquitoes carry.
