Problems Mosquitoes Bring to Virginia Properties During the Summer
Mosquitoes bring a bevy of problems to Virginia properties during the summer. The wet spring has turned into warm summer days and, with them, mosquito eggs have hatched, and the adults are now hungry for a meal. As you try to enjoy your yard this summer, they are making it impossible by swarming your summer gatherings and feasting on your family and friends. Not only are mosquito bites itchy and annoying, but they can also carry deadly diseases. Professional pest control through AllPest is your best bet if mosquitoes are ruining your summer.
Virginia Homes Swarmed with Mosquitoes
It’s inevitable. As the warm weather settles in, so do the mosquitoes.
There are some things you can do to try to reduce the mosquito population on your property:
Keep your grass trimmed short.
Cut back landscaping and vegetation.
Avoid excessive moisture through overwatering.
Eliminate sources of stagnant water.
Use natural mosquito repelling plants, such as lemongrass and lavender.
Different Problems with and Dangers from Mosquitoes
Certain people seem to attract mosquitoes. These same people seem to end up with inflamed, itchy welts from mosquito bites. For these people, mosquito bites can be quite a problem, as the scratching can cause infections. For some people, mosquitoes will bite, and they barely notice or get a mark. Unfortunately, in both cases, it doesn’t matter how mosquitoes affect you if they are carrying a disease.
Mosquitoes can transmit a variety of harmful diseases, including:
West Nile virus.
Eastern Equine encephalitis.
Other forms of encephalitis.
All these diseases are transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito. They can all cause flu-like symptoms, such as aches, fever, and rash. However, they can progress into more dangerous and even deadly symptoms.
