Mosquitoes aren’t just a nuisance. They are a great danger in many ways. They spread Malaria, which is, one of the world’s leading causes of death. Mosquitoes can also pass other fatal diseases to people, such as West Nile virus, a rather common disease in the United States. Mosquitoes transmit diseases to animals too. These include heartworm disease, common to dogs and West Nile virus to birds. Mosquito control Miami manages the population of mosquitoes to reduce their damage to various aspects of human life such as health, national output and social welfare of communities. Mosquito control is a vital practice for the general health of people throughout the world. Nuisance Wildlife Rangers has just the right fixes and information to deal with these bothersome vampires.

Why Are Mosquitoes Dangerous?

Mosquitoes, simply put, are one of man’s worst natural enemies. They’re tiny but hold the record for having more deaths than any other animal in the world. Firstly, they are bloodsuckers. They inject two tubes into their prey for blood sucking and another tube with enzymes to prevent blood clotting. While feeding, they cause irritations to us because some of us are allergic to the enzymes they inject into us. They can carry infections from place to place with some of its species such as the black marsh mosquito, able to travel hundreds of miles. Some of the diseases mosquitoes help transit include Malaria, Japanese Encephalitis, Yellow fever, Dengue fever and the Zika virus. These are some of the worst diseases known to man.


What Is The Most Effective Mosquito Repellent?

Insecticides are a quick and effective way of dealing with mosquitoes. Unfortunately, their effect fades away very soon after. Mosquito control experts only use insecticide together with other mosquito control methods because insecticides are not a long-term control method. Two popular insecticides people use are Malathion, used to treat crops against a variety of insects. It is sprayed onto vegetation where mosquitoes rest. It poses no threat to humans or wildlife. Another is Permethrin, which interferes with their nervous system. It is lethal to bees and fish. These insecticides will work for a few days when sprayed on vegetation but will dissipate with time. Another concern that has arisen with the use of insecticides, is resistance buildup from the mosquito population due to repeated use. It is a challenge to the fight against diseases spread by mosquitoes.

Garlic is another method that has been suggested to work. Research done to test this belief has shown that this really is not an effective method.
