Mosquitoes can cause sickness and death through the diseases they can carry. West Nile Virus, Malaria, Dengue Fever, Encephalitis, Yellow Fever, and Zika Virus are just a few diseases that can be transmitted by mosquitos. Apart from disease, mosquitoes also cause nuisance problems for homeowners and disrupt recreational activities such as sitting on the porch and playing in the yard. In extreme situations high levels of mosquitoes can pose a threat to livestock and wild animals as well.
The typical female mosquito bites humans and mammals for their blood to get the protein needed to produce her eggs. Following her “blood meal”, she will rest a few days until the eggs are fully developed. Once they are ready, the female lays the eggs and then continues her search for a new host. A female mosquito can lay between 100-300 eggs at one time; she can lay between 1,000 – 3,000 in her lifetime, which averages two weeks. Most mosquitoes stay within 1-2 miles of their breeding habitat, but some can fly 5 to 10 miles away!
The economic and social impact of the problems that mosquitoes cause is staggering for such a tiny little insect. And unfortunately, controlling mosquitos with electric bug zappers, ultrasonic repelling devices and citronella candles doesn’t work.
