Mosquito Diseases Such as West Nile, Dengue Fever, Encephalitis, Chikungunya & Zika Virus
More deaths are attributed to mosquitoes than most other animal in the world! Being carriers and transmitters of diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, West Nile Virus, chikungunya, Zika virus and many others. Mosquitoes infect unsuspecting humans and animals while they dine on their blood. However, only females feed on blood for the needed protein they crave for laying eggs. Males prefer to dine on nectar from plants. When females feed on blood, they can consume up to three times their body weight making their abdomen swell and expand to hold the blood.
Mosquito Prevention in Yard
Mosquitoes prefer stagnant, standing water. Simple puddles can be sufficient. Females lay their eggs on the surface of the water. Like many flying insects, mosquitoes have four life cycles; egg matures to larva, then grows to pupa and ends as adults. When they are on the hunt for a host, they detect carbon dioxide; the gas that expels when we exhale. Folks that breathe heavy as well as pregnant ladies get more attention from the little blood suckers. Since mosquitoes spend most of their life near or on the water, their predators include dragonflies, frogs, toads, fish, spiders, and birds among others.
Despite the fact that once mosquitoes reach adulthood they die off pretty quickly (males two weeks and females up to a month), females are capable of laying up to 300 eggs at one time. Once they have hatched, most mosquitoes will stay within 300 feet of their birth place, but will fly up to 20 miles in search of a bloody banquet. The saliva they secrete after a bite keeps the open wound from clotting, allowing them to feed on a free flowing spout. The itchy red welt many people notice after a bite is actually a mild allergic reaction to the saliva.
