Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance pest as they are known for spreading diseases and carrying pathogens that affect humans as well as pets. Mosquitoes are getting a lot of press lately because of the Zika Virus that is quickly spreading in South and Central America. It affects pregnant women and the unborn child with life threatening birth defects. The West Nile Virus causes swelling of the brain in animals, humans and birds that can lead to death. La Crosse Encephalitis is transmitted by mosquitoes in the central part of our state causing neurological problems in children. Dog Heartworm is a roundworm that is transmitted to dogs that accumulate in the heart and may cause death. These are some of the reasons our clients want them eliminated.
Mosquitoes have a 4 stage life cycle: egg – larvae – pupae – adult
