What Are Mosquitoes?
One of the most common insects found throughout the world are mosquitoes. These annoying flying insects grow through four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult, with the first 3 stages being aquatic. Unknown to many, a male mosquito feeds on nectar, whereas only a female mosquito feed on human and other mammal’s blood.
Are Mosquitoes Really Dangerous?
While male mosquitoes are harmless, female mosquitoes bite will create a welt on your skin as an allergic reaction to its blood clotting saliva. Along with producing a welt on your skin, mosquitoes are carriers of many infectious diseases, including West Nile Virus and malaria. Mosquitoes are responsible for killing millions of people through the spread of infectious diseases.
Mosquito Prevention Tips For Your Yard
Since mosquitoes spend ¾ of their life cycle in water, one of the easiest steps to take in preventing or reducing mosquito populations is to eliminate stagnant water on your property.
