Mosquitoes Carry Diseases
As pesky as they are, mosquitoes can also be dangerous. They are known to carry and transmit a number of diseases, including malaria, dengue fever, and the West Nile virus. These diseases can cause serious illness or even death in some cases. That's why it's so important to take steps to control the mosquito population around your home.
Much has been published about the Zika virus. This virus is primarily transmitted to humans by the Aedes mosquito. As of January 18, 2017, 217 cases of this disease have been locally transmitted by a mosquito in the continental United States. 211 cases have been reported in the state of Florida and the other six have been reported in Texas. Local mosquito-borne transmission of Zika virus has been reported in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and American Samoa as well as Mexico.
