Once warmer spring weather hits Missouri, mosquitoes begin breeding and make themselves an unwelcome pest. They can ruin any type of outdoor activities you have planned, such as picnics and parties, while derailing your efforts at working in your garden or around your yard. In addition to leaving bites and welt marks that are irritating, easily infected, and impossible to ignore, they can spread a variety of potentially serious illnesses and diseases, which can impact both humans and pets. Even if you are only dealing with a few mosquitoes, it is important to take immediate action to prevent a complete infestation. At Amco Ranger, our pest control experts are here to help eliminate your problem.
The Risks Posed by Mosquitoes
In addition to being an unsightly pest which can make it next to impossible to enjoy the outdoors, mosquitoes are known for their bite. The Missouri Department of Conservation advises that certain types of mosquitoes feed on the blood of humans or animals and can carry potentially life threatening diseases. These include:
- West Nile Virus: This is an infection mosquitoes pick up after feeding on the blood of birds. Symptoms include headaches, fever, body aches, rashes, and swollen lymph glands. In severe cases, West Nile virus can cause confusion, seizures, coma, and even death. Once infected, it is easily transmitted through contact with other humans or animals.
- Zika Virus: Transmitted through mosquito bites, the Zika virus can cause symptoms that last several days to a week or more. These include fever, rash, joint pain, muscle aches, and red, swollen eyes. The biggest risk associated with Zika is to pregnant women. Once they have been infected, the virus can pass to their unborn child. It can result in severe brain disorders, as well as miscarriage, stillbirth, and other birth defects.
While some mosquito-borne diseases, such as yellow fever and malaria, have been eradicated in the U.S., others can still be found in Missouri. St. Charles County warns that there are periodic outbreaks of mosquito-borne encephalitis, which can cause confused thinking, seizures, and problems with movement. In addition to protecting you and your family, Amco Ranger mosquito control can also help protect dogs, horses, and other animals on your property against bites which could result in heartworm and other deadly infections.
