Dengue fever can make you feel dreadful for at least a week and for individuals with a weaker immune system, even longer. The Zika virus can cause illness and tiredness for months. Especially for the youth and elderly, mosquito control systems should be in place around properties and workplaces to avoid female mosquitoes to feed on humans and spread any diseases.
Mosquitoes Require Blood
Humans are relatively simple and straightforward targets for mosquitoes, especially when the female mosquito requires blood to be able to lay fertile eggs. Although all mosquitoes enjoy the nectar from flowers, the female requires a regular source of blood from animals or humans to be able to lay a further batch of eggs.
Mosquito control systems should be provided by a professional company who is experienced in their work, placing a barrier around your property to discourage mosquitoes from entering. The pest control company should also teach you preventable measures such as avoiding any standing water from collecting and creating a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Any collection of water can provide a great source for breeding around a property, with even the smallest depth of water as an attraction to mosquitoes. It is easy to forget empty tires and flower pots that will provide a perfect area for mosquitoes to breed and grow.
Most mosquitoes are active at dawn and dusk, but mosquitoes carrying dengue fever will often remain active during daylight hours.
A licensed professional will install a complete mosquito control system and inspect your property to ensure that you are not providing perfect areas for mosquitoes to breed.
You can arrange a regular contract so that you do not have to worry about when your pest control professional will be visiting, and know your protection from these pests will remain throughout the year, especially when mosquitoes are likely to be around at their peak, looking for food and energy around your home.
