As soon as the temperatures become mild in Latrobe, those relentless mosquitoes come out. Stop sharing your yard with annoying mosquitoes and start enjoying the outdoors. Nothing can ruin a good summer evening among friends like the constant pin-prick bite followed by the inevitable self-smacking. As the master of your property, you should not be driven from your backyard because of these bothersome creatures. Instead, it’s time to invest in a highly effective Mosquito Control Program through your friends at LawnRx.
Mosquitoes are not just annoying pests that cause red, itchy bites. They are known carriers of several diseases harmful to both you and your pets. Constantly shifting weather patterns can cause new diseases to be transmitted by mosquitoes every few years. Currently, the three most common and well-known diseases include:
West Nile Virus
The leading mosquito-borne illness in the United States is the West Nile virus. Most cases of the West Nile virus are mild and cause little to no symptoms. However, for some people, the disease can cause inflammation of the brain and spinal cord and even become deadly. Symptoms of the West Nile virus include stiff neck, sleepiness, and disorientation. On the severe side, symptoms include tremors, convulsions, and paralysis. At this time, there is no known cure or vaccine to prevent this disease.
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
While Eastern Equine Encephalitis is an extremely rare disease caused by an infected mosquito’s bite, it can cause encephalitis or inflammation of the brain if one gets infected. Some people infected with EEE have no symptoms, while others that develop the illness develop fever, headache, weakness, and body and muscle pain.
The Zika Virus is transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito. It can also be transferred from a pregnant woman to her unborn fetus. At this time, there is no cure or vaccine for the Zika virus. Common symptoms of Zika virus include fever, headache, joint pain, muscle pain, and red eyes. Zika infection during pregnancy can cause congenital disabilities.
