Prevent the Spread of Disease with Mosquito Control Services

Despite their size, mosquitoes are one of the most dangerous creatures in the world and are the cause of most human deaths because of the diseases and parasites they carry and spread. A single mosquito bite is all it takes to transmit a virus or parasite, which makes a swarm of hundreds or thousands of mosquitoes even more of a threat.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), these afflictions include:

  • West Nile: The primary symptoms of West Nile Virus include headaches, body aches, fever, diarrhea, joint pain, and rash. But you could develop more severe symptoms such as coma, tremors, vision loss, and paralysis.
  • Zika: Zika symptoms include red eyes, fever, headache, joint pain, headache, and muscle pain.
  • Heartworm: If you have a dog or cat, their coat won’t protect them from bites, leaving them vulnerable to threadlike roundworms that will grow inside their heart and pulmonary arteries.
  • Malaria: Symptoms such as fever and chills could occur, but Malaria can also cause severe complications that could result in death.
  • St. Louis Encephalitis: There is no vaccine for St. Louis Encephalitis, so if you contract this virus after a mosquito bite and experience symptoms including fever, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, and headache, see your doctor. Medical treatment is particularly crucial since you could also develop inflammation of the brain and meningitis, both of which are life-threatening.
  • Ross River Virus: Ross River Virus symptoms include muscle pain, swelling, rash, fever, and tiredness.
  • Yellow Fever: You could experience fever, headaches, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting blood, yellow skin and eyes, irregular heartbeat, bleeding, delirium, and a decrease in urination if you contract this virus.
  • Dengue Fever: Dengue Fever symptoms include fever, body aches, headache, nausea, and rash.
  • Rift Valley Fever: Vision problems, fever, weakness, back pain, dizziness, inflammation, and bleeding are all symptoms that could indicate Rift Valley Fever.

To prevent the spread of disease and parasites, it is important to control mosquito populations and take personal measures to prevent bites. While it is rare to contract a virus or parasite from a mosquito bite and experience any symptoms, if you do experience symptoms after a bite, we strongly urge you to seek medical treatment. Our professional exterminators understand the danger of mosquitoes. Our  mosquito control services work to reduce and eliminate their population at the source.

Common Types of Mosquitoes in Wasco, CA

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has identified at least six types of mosquitoes that make our state their home, including:

  • Western Encephalitis Mosquito
  • Northern/Southern House Mosequito
  • Yellow Fever Mosquito
  • Asian Tiger Mosquito
  • Western Tree-Hole Mosquito
  • Western Malaria Mosquito

Mosquitoes require lush vegetation and sources of standing water to breed to build a population, which can spread to or even begin in your own yard. They must also feed on the blood of humans or animals.

A population of mosquitoes has the potential to explode under the right conditions, especially since females can lay up to 200 eggs at a time and live for up to two months. However, there are a variety of methods that professionals and non-professionals can employ to control mosquitoes.

Mosquito Control Methods in Wasco

Our Wasco mosquito control service include steps such as investigating the source of your mosquito infestation so we can thoroughly eliminate the population and prevent them from coming back. To achieve these goals, we can use methods of control such as:

  • Larvacides: Larvacides poison mosquitoes in their larval stage before they become adults.
  • Mosquito traps: Using bait, a trap lures mosquitoes inside, and they cannot escape.
  • Insecticides: Insecticides are typically liquid sprays that poison mosquitoes.
  • Fogging: A canister of fogger releases a cloud of toxic smoke that kills mosquitoes and other insects. These are typically best for use indoors.
  • Natural mosquito repellants: If chemicals are not your preference, there are natural mosquito repellants available that we can use.

DIY Mosquito Control Methods

For those who wish to control their own mosquito infestation, there are methods for you as well, including:

  • Citronella oil: Using citronella oil in torches placed in your yard will repel mosquitoes.
  • Remove stagnant water: Mosquitoes prefer standing water, such as in pots or old tires, so dumping them out and disposing of them properly will prevent standing water sources in your yard.
  • Install screens in windows and doors: Screens prevent mosquitoes from flying into your home while you let fresh air into the house through the doors and windows.
  • Use insect repellants: Retail insect repellants and insecticides are available for your use to eliminate mosquitoes.
  • Maintain your yard: Mosquitoes love long grasses, so maintaining your yard to keep your grass and other vegetation short and tidy will go a long way to repel mosquitoes.

These DIY tips typically work best after you have elimated the infestation. Whether you choose to do it yourself or call a professional exterminator in Wasco, the important thing is that you are taking action to protect yourself and those around you from mosquitoes and the viruses and parasites they carry.
