We all know that mosquitoes are invasive and pesky little things that just love to bite us, but have you heard about the dangers of the Zika virus that they are carrying? The Asian tiger mosquito thrives and repopulates in our urban landscape of clutter and trash, so controlling the spread of this pest will be extremely difficult. These black and white striped mosquitoes are a potential carrier of the Zika virus that is taking over Brazil.
The Zika virus induces fever, joint pain, rash, conjunctivitis, muscle pain and headaches. Even though the incubation period is unknown it is estimated that it is likely to last about a week. Currently there is no preventative vaccine or medication to treat this scary new infection. It is also very important to note that the Zika virus can spread from a pregnant woman to her fetus and reports of a serious birth defect of the brain called microcephaly has been confirmed.
Experts all agree that this virus will come to the US and the mosquito epidemic will pose a serious problem, but no one knows exactly when or where. So we suggest that you keep an eye out for any larval sightings; especially in small pockets of water in yard in places like fountains, buckets, trash cans, toys, gutters, or anything of that sort. Within one week the larvae can develop into adults, reproduce, and infect us with the Zika virus so it is imperative that you act fast when any are spotted.
Preventing mosquitoes in and around your home is the best way to protect you and your family from contracting this harmful virus. We specialize in using natural repellents to safely eliminate mosquitoes from your home. We also apply bacteria in the breeding ground to ensure that the mosquito larvae are eradicated.
Taking these steps early in the season before summer rolls around will help to significantly reduce numbers in their annual population.
