Pest of the Month: Mosquitos, Avian Flu, Zika Virus

Don’t become a victim to Mosquitoes this summer! These pests thrive in hot weather and can be a threat to your health. Mosquitoes can harbor deadly diseases such as Zika and West Nile virus, which are passed on through their bites, and can be transmitted to humans or other mammals. The Zika virus can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus, and potentially cause birth defects. West Nile virus can cause serious health issues including fever, body aches, nausea, vomiting, and skin rashes. Protecting yourself during these hot months are crucial, so make sure you’re prepared and informed. Using mosquito repellant spray is a common and easy way to prevent mosquito bites.
