There are over thirty-five hundred types of mosquitoes worldwide, two hundred in the United States, and Texas alone, there eighty-five different species of mosquitoes. Luckily, not all of them are dangerous, but all of them are irritating. Some Genus of mosquitoes is known for carrying Zika, West Nile, and Malaria. The best protection from these diseases is to prevent an infected mosquito from biting.
The most effective way to prevent bites is ridding the neighborhood of mosquitoes entirely. Real Green Pest Control works to keep the mosquito population down, and your neighborhood protected.
It is important to protect you, and your family by preventing mosquito bites. The CDC recommends using repellents registered with the Environmental Protection Agency that includes one of these active ingredients:
More information on repellents can be found here: Repellents: Protection against Mosquitoes, Ticks and Other Arthropods | US EPA
As well as using repellents, during high mosquito activity hours, the CDC recommends wearing long, loose, light-colored clothing. Wearing repellent-treated clothing will also help protect from bites.
Another step to take is to avoid leaving standing water or extremely damp earth on your property. Mosquitoes favor damp, or wet areas to lay eggs, so keeping your property dry will discourage breeding in your area. If you have decorative standing water, such as birdbaths or fish ponds, it’s advisable to clean them out at least once a week or install a filter.
The best way to protect your family from mosquito bites is to obliterate the threat of mosquitoes. Contacting pest control for mosquito protection treatments will ensure you and your family can enjoy the outdoors worry-free.
