The first thing you should know about dealing with mosquitoes is to avoid their bites. Mosquitoes are arthropods that belong to the family Astragalus. Mosquitoes are notorious for transmitting various diseases to humans and animals through their bites. The top five diseases mosquitoes carry include:
- Malaria: Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by Plasmodium parasites transmitted to humans through the bites of infected Anopheles mosquitoes. Symptoms may include high fever, chills, and flu-like illness, which, if left untreated, can progress to severe complications and even death.
- Dengue Fever: Dengue fever is a viral disease caused by the dengue virus and transmitted mainly by Aedes mosquitoes. It can lead to severe flu-like symptoms, such as high fever, severe headache, joint and muscle pain, and skin rash. In severe cases, dengue can progress to dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome, which can be life-threatening.
- Zika Virus: The Zika virus is primarily transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. While many people infected with Zika may experience mild symptoms or none at all, it can cause severe birth defects in babies born to infected pregnant women and has been associated with Guillain-Barré syndrome, a neurological disorder.
- West Nile Virus (WNV): WNV is a viral infection transmitted to humans through the bites of infected Culex mosquitoes. Most people infected with WNV show no symptoms, but in some cases, it can cause mild flu-like symptoms or more severe neuroinvasive diseases, affecting the central nervous system.
- Yellow Fever: Yellow fever is a viral disease transmitted to humans through the bites of infected Aedes or Haemagogus mosquitoes. Symptoms may include fever, headache, jaundice, muscle pain, and vomiting. In severe cases, yellow fever can lead to organ failure and death.
For these reasons, it is essential to have a home in Huntsville, Memphis, and Knoxville that is as mosquito-free as possible. If you don’t want to deal with the pain of getting bitten by one, you will want to find out what you can do to stop them from breeding in the first place.
