We all know how annoying mosquitoes can be, especially when trying to entertain outdoors or enjoy the patio or garden. But did you know that mosquitoes are not just a nuisance but, also a potential threat to your family’s health and well-being? This year, more than most, mosquitoes have been making headlines in the news and all over the internet.
Mosquito-borne diseases have been under intense scrutiny this year due to a rise in the transmission of the Zika virus in the southern and central Americas.The World Health Organization reports that the virus is an international public health emergency. In addition to Zika, there are other mosquito-borne illnesses closer to home that also pose a threat to your family. The West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE or “Triple E”) are viruses that can cause illness ranging from a mild fever to more serious disease like encephalitis or meningitis. These diseases can be transmitted to your family and pets through a single bite!
In light of these potential illnesses, isn’t it time you consider mounting a counter attack and reclaiming your yard from mosquitoes? Using a canister of insect repellant is a good start but, wouldn’t you like to have peace of mind by hiring a professional to get the job done right?
