Mosquitos Are So Much More Than Just Annoying
Mosquitoes are considered one of the most dangerous creatures on the planet. They can spread deadly diseases that do not affect them. Diseases that can also be transferred from animal to human via a mosquito bite, specifically the West Nile virus. The following is a list of some of the diseases spread by mosquitoes:
- Zika virus
- West Nile virus
- Yellow fever
Do not dismiss this list because you think they sound foreign. Many cases that have emerged in the U.S. traced back to a mosquito bite as the mosquitoes can carry them here from other parts of the world.
DIY That Blood Sucker
Homeowners will inevitably attempt to handle the problem on their own. Through a series of hacks, store-bought pesticides, and natural remedies. We can't say that they are completely ineffective, but we can say they won't finish the job. Have you tried any of these? Here's our rating of the most common mosquito tips and DIY solutions on a scale of one to five, one being the worst and five being the best.
- Stay away from or remove stagnant water from around your property, this includes flower pots and rain gutters. Rating - Five.
- Ensure screens are in place, and do not leave doors open. Check for rips and tears in screen material, also bent or damaged frames. Rating - Five.
- Use a repellant. Deet is available in many strengths and works well. There are also several essential oil products that work well. Rating - Three.
- Wear light-colored clothing, for some reason they are not as attracted to them. Rating - One.
- Stay inside during dawn and dusk. This one works, but why should you have to? Rating - Three.
- Citronella torches and candles. Rating - One.
- Remove decaying plant material from around the home, keep shrubs trimmed, and grass mowed. Rating - Four.
These are temporary solutions at best, and more often than not, you will end up spending a lot of money, and not being satisfied with the results. You could make it easier on yourself by calling GeoMosquito from the beginning.
