No one likes mosquitoes
. They’re annoying, they ruin a nice evening outside, and they leave you itchy and irritated. Even so, most people think they’re one of those pests you just have to put up with. You might try putting out a citronella candle or swatting as many as you can, but there’s really no way to eliminate them. Or is there? Here’s why you should call Modern Pest Control if mosquitoes invade your Houston yard.
- Mosquitoes are annoying. It goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway - mosquitoes are the worst. They buzz in your ears and tickle your arms and legs, and their bites can make you crazy with the itchiness and pain they inflict. Mosquitoes can ruin a backyard get-together faster than you can say, “Boy, the mosquitoes are out tonight!” They are some of the most annoying pests around.
- Mosquitoes can be dangerous. Mosquitoes aren’t just insects that will bug you, they can also be dangerous. World-wide, mosquitoes are the deadliest animal alive, causing over 700,000 deaths a year. Thankfully, they’re not as dangerous in the United States as they are in other parts of the world. But they still transmit a number of diseases that can cause serious illnesses and that can sometimes result in death. These diseases include West Nile Virus, dengue, Zika Virus, and malaria.
- Mosquitoes are difficult to eliminate. There are certain things you can do to try to reduce the mosquito population from your Houston yard. You can get rid of excess moisture on your property, use citronella candles when you’re outside, and add mosquito-repelling plants to your garden.
Unfortunately, none of these steps will completely eliminate your mosquito problem. Even if you reduce their numbers, there will still be a few mosquitoes buzzing around, and others will find their way into your Houston yard from your neighbors’ yards.
