Mosquito Control Service Jacksonville
When you live in Florida, mosquitoes can be a bother almost year round. Along with other biting pests, mosquitoes can be aggravating to anyone trying to enjoy an outdoor environment. To make matters worse, the news has recently been filled with stories about the spread of the Zika virus, a dangerous mosquito-related disease. Most people know that diseases can be transmitted through mosquito bites, but mosquitoes can carry millions of microorganisms on their feet that also can be passed on to humans. With the opportunity for transmission evident, a good mosquito control service is needed to help control diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and West Nile virus.
Common Culprits for Mosquito Infestations
Most people who are infected by a mosquito bite are never aware of their exposure until symptoms of a serious illness occurs. That makes controlling the conditions that are suitable for reproduction even more important. Contributors to the spread of mosquitoes and disease include:
- Standing water after heavy rains
- Old car tires without drain holes
- Clogged rain gutters
- Stagnant pools of water from flooding
- Empty pools, clay pots or containers
- Uncovered trash containers
- Shrubbery that is not well trimmed
- Tree rot holes and hollow stumps
- Un-kept bird baths or decorative pots
Climate change has also affected the migration of mosquitoes to more populated areas as well as increase the breeding cycle leading to larger populations of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes don't just infect humans, they can pose a serious threat to your animals and livestock.
