What would you give to have one summer day outside without the bothersome presence of mosquitoes? Some people would go to the extent of covering themselves in mosquito repellant. Although this can do the trick, it is not always enjoyable to cover yourself with sticky and often bad-smelling bug spray just to keep away mosquitoes. Wouldn’t it be nicer if there was some other way to deal with these blood-stealing frustrations without having to cover your body with repellant? We are here to tell you there is!
Why Mosquitoes Are More Than an Annoyance
There is no questioning the fact that mosquitoes are annoying. Slapping at tiny pinpricks of pain every 30 seconds is not a great way to keep a person sane. But the real problem lies behind those pinpricks of pain, and in what they could mean. You see, when mosquitoes bite an individual and feed on their blood, there is always a risk of picking up a disease. Now, even though the mosquito itself does not contract the disease they pick up, they do pose the risk of transmitting it to the next person or people they bite. Some common diseases mosquitoes can carry and transmit include:
- West Nile Virus
- Dengue Fever
- Yellow Fever
- Chikungunya Virus
- Zika Virus
Why DIY Mosquito Prevention Often Fain
When it comes to dealing with mosquitoes on your own, there are really only three things you can do: cover yourself with repellant, reduce mosquito-breeding grounds on your property, and build an area that deters mosquitoes, using a light breeze or mosquito proof screening. The only problem is that these three things often have drawbacks or shortcomings. Mosquito repellant is often uncomfortable. Reducing breeding grounds can only be done on your property and does have much of an effect if your neighbors have mosquito breeding grounds. And building a mosquito-free zone is usually fairly expensive. The best way to effectively handle the problem is with the help of a professional.
