Are Mosquitoes Dangerous?
Mosquitoes bite humans in order to consume their blood. This can cause
very itchy, swollen, red bites that are typically nothing more than a
nuisance. However, while mosquito bites are most often just irritating,
they can also sometimes be quite harmful. Mosquitoes are known to carry
and transmit diseases such as malaria, West Nile virus, dengue fever,
yellow fever, Zika virus, and more.
That doesn’t mean that you should run to the doctor every time you
are bitten by a mosquito. You should contact a medical professional if
you experience headache, fever, aches, or rashes after receiving a mosquito bite.
How to Prevent Mosquitoes
The key to preventing mosquitoes in your yard is to eliminate standing
water. Mosquitoes love standing water because it makes for the perfect
breeding ground. Even so much as a cup of water left out is enough to
attract mosquitoes to a yard. Once you stop overwatering your garden and
remove water from birdbaths, ponds, buckets, old tires, and gutters, you
should see a reduction in the number of mosquitoes in your yard.
Additionally, to prevent mosquitoes, you should:
- Plant mosquito-repelling plants such as lavender, citronella, and rosemary
- Place mosquito lanterns around your yard
- Keep your hedges, bushes, and grass trimmed
- Schedule routine mosquito treatments
Preventing mosquitoes is quite difficult, which is why it is a good idea
to bring in a team of trained professionals who know how to effectively
reduce mosquito populations. At McCauley Services, we use EPA-registered
products designed to target mosquito breeding sites while protecting you,
your family, and your beloved pets.
