What would warm summer nights be without food from the grill, stellar sunsets, and bloodsucking mosquitos? Well, they’d probably be better without the mosquitos. Although we’ve come to terms in many parts of Texas with an eternal coexistence with these bugs, there is much we can do to prevent having to share space with these biting pests. Out of over 3,500 species, only 200 or so feed on humans. Unfortunately, those that do cause more than minor irritation and annoyance.
If you were asked what the most deadly animal in the world is, what would you guess? Sharks? Lions? Even humans? Well, you’d be wrong on all accounts. The most dangerous, most lethal, most fatal creature in the world is the lowly mosquito. Fortunately, in the United States, we don’t have to worry as much about many of the diseases spread by mosquitos across the globe, but with the influx of West Nile and the Zika virus, we must be more prepared than ever against these flying disease delivery trucks.
Mosquitos can lay thousands of eggs in just a few weeks. The key to their survival is standing, stagnant water. Any standing water on your property is an invitation to these bugs, and they’ll take advantage of it. You may work to free your property of collecting water, but you can’t control what your neighbors do, or how water collects around your neighborhood. The fact of the matter in Texas is that for much of the year there is a threat of mosquitos, and we’re here to help you do as much as you can to prevent them from wreaking havoc on your outside time. Here at 855Bugs, we have special treatment options available to ensure that you won’t have to deal with one more mosquito than you absolutely have to this summer.
