Mosquito Season is Here!

Is your family protected from the hundreds of thousands that are now breeding in your backyard?

Mosquito Season is Here!

May to October is typically known as mosquito season.  We have started receiving calls about them and you may start to notice a nibble or two while out in your yard.  Because of the Zika Virus, it’s important to be aware of the news and travel info that the CDC is sending out.

Prevention is really the key to spreading diseases caused by mosquito bites.  Mosquitoes can spread diseases like the Zika virus, malaria, yellow fever, west Nile Virus, Chikungunya, dengue fever, filarasis and more.  Symptoms of the Zika Virus can include fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes).  These symptoms can last from several days to several weeks.

Mosquitoes need water in order to breed.  You may be raising hundreds of thousands of mosquitoes in your yard without even realizing it!  Take a look at the diagram below to see the most common mosquito breeding grounds.
