There are certain pests that cause harm to your home and health. At All Care Pest Control, we strive to protect your property from bugs that carry diseases. The most common pests include mosquitoes and ticks. It is important to understand the dangers they cause you and your loved ones.
Mosquitoes and West Nile Virus
Mosquito bites are annoying. Besides the pain and itchiness, these bites may transmit serious diseases. Mosquitoes feed on the blood of humans and animals. This is a major reason why disease is spread. West Nile virus is one of the most serious diseases contracted by mosquito bites. Symptoms include headache, fatigue, fever, skin rash, and swollen glands.
Ticks and Lyme Disease
Besides mosquitoes, tick bites are common throughout the summer months as well. They pose a threat to both humans and pets that play in grassy areas. A tick normally locates a host, cuts into the skin, and attaches itself as it feeds for several days. Ticks are very small but are likely to carry Lyme disease. Early signs of the problem in an infected person include a rash resembling a bulls-eye. Later, flu-like symptoms develop. Ticks often carry multiple pathogens, so it is possible to become infected with more than one disease from a single bite. This is the main reason why it is important to eliminate these bugs from your home environment.
