Environmentally Safe Mosquito Control with ProControl Services
Whether you own a business, a home, or work for the community, mosquitoes are a problem that must be addressed. From Alaska to Florida, mosquitoes will absolutely dominate an area if left untreated and free to breed. There are over 175 species of mosquito in the United States alone, with 80 being found in Florida. In all species, the females are the biting culprits. Interestingly enough, a mosquito doesn’t bite you for food. Both male and female mosquitoes eat nectar or similar plant sugars. Female mosquitoes, however, must have the gathered blood to create needed proteins for up to 300 eggs she can lay at any given time. With so many being “born” at a time, they are difficult to control, especially where water sources are abundant and temperatures are pleasant.
Why Mosquito Control is Necessary
Believe it or not, Mosquitoes are considered the most deadly insect in the world as they transmit a variety of illnesses to their victims causing many deaths every year. According to the World Health Organization, Malaria alone killed over 405,000 people in 2018. Mosquitoes feed day and night and are not at all picky in who they target. All outdoor animals are subject to their bite and, at times, this can drive animals almost to insanity. For humans, we use options such as insect repellent sprays and bug zappers, but this requires you to be directly in the area of the bug zapper and still most will come to you rather than the zapper. This is because mosquitoes use body heat, sweat, and breath to identify a potential target. Spray-on options are effective, but require the user to directly apply chemicals repeatedly to the skin, our largest organ. Bats and birds eat very few mosquitoes. The majority of natural mosquito deaths are due to dragonflies and the mosquitofish, but they can only control so much.
Mosquitoes are carriers of many transmittable viruses in the United States. The top four of these illnesses are listed below with their most commonly associated symptoms as is reported by the CDC. Please note, symptoms below are typical symptoms, but any of these can and do become critical life-threatening illnesses in some cases. It wholeheartedly depends on how each person’s specific body handles the illness.
- West Nile Virus- fever, headache, joint pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rash
- Malaria- fever, chills, flu-like illness
- Dengue- fever with nausea, vomiting, rash, aches, and pains
- Chikungunya- fever, joint pain, headache, muscle pain, joint swelling rash
