ELITE PEST MANAGEMENT, LLC – MOSQUITO SERVICES & EXTERMINATOR
Mosquitoes are vectors of numerous diseases including malaria, yellow fever, dengue, encephalitis, Chikungunya, West Nile virus and Zika – the newest mosquito-borne disease of growing concern.
Wearing an insect repellent containing DEET or another EPA-registered ingredient is the best way to prevent mosquito bites. It’s also important to take steps to prevent mosquito breeding grounds around your home, since mosquitoes can lay eggs in as little as a half an inch of water. If you are concerned about mosquito control on your property, contact a mosquito management company for advice on how to get rid of mosquitoes.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mosquito bites result in the deaths of more than 1 million people every year – the majority of these deaths are due to malaria. The CDC helped eliminate malaria as a major public health problem in the United States in the late 1940s. However, it reports that approximately 1,500 cases of malaria are documented each year in the United States due to imported cases, mainly from travelers. West Nile virus and dengue fever are of greatest concern in the U.S.
