Did you know? Mosquitos are the world’s deadliest animalsWhen someone mentions the term “world’s deadliest animal” you probably start thinking of sharks, tigers, crocodiles and other fierce creatures. Well, it may shock you to learn that it’s actually mosquitoes. Why? Well, it’s down to the harmful diseases that they are known to spread such as Malaria, Zika and Dengue. Mosquitos are believed to be responsible for 1 million deaths per year!
Keep Your Pets SafeHeartworms in dogs are easy to prevent, but difficult and costly to cure. Dogs are infected by heartworm by the bite of an infected mosquito. There’s no other way dogs get heartworms. And there’s no way to tell if a mosquito is infected. That’s why prevention is so important.
Tips for Preventing Mosquitos
Mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide (the air we exhale) and can sense it from up to 30 yards away. Mosquitoes are also drawn to body heat, moisture, movement, and dark colors. In addition to professional mosquito control, there are some things you can do at home to reduce mosquito bites.
- Eliminate areas with standing water once a week.
- Keep gutters clean.
- Remove any litter from yard – mosquitoes can lay eggs in small, discarded items that hold water, such as cans, bottles, wrappers, etc.
- Correct drainage issues, if any.
- Dress in light colored, loose fitting clothing when outdoors.
- Use GE yellow “bug lights” – these do not repel mosquitoes but, unlike incandescent lights, do not attract them.
- Use citronella candles, although they only have a mild effect.
- Place a large fan on decks or patios – mosquitoes are weak fliers.
