Mosquito Borne Disease
Mosquitoes are responsible for more human deaths than anything else in the world. That is a heavy statement, but it is true. While most of these cases are found in South America and Africa, these is still a minor problem here in the United States. The most common mosquito borne disease is the West Nile Virus. In the United States during the last 10 years, there have been just under 25,000 reported cases and just under 1,100 deaths. In 2014, the first cases of another dangerous disease were confirmed, the Chikungunya Virus. The most common symptoms are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash.
Mosquitoes are also particularly harmful to pets. Mosquitoes are the number one transmitters of heartworms to dogs and cats.
What do they eat and why do they bite me?
Mosquitoes feed on vegetation for the essential nutrients they need to survive. Only female mosquitoes bite humans and animals. They do this to get proteins out of the blood needed to reproduce.
