Mosquitoes Spread Encephalitis, Zika and Heartworm
Let Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions rid them from your Marvin property!
Mosquitoes can be super spreaders when it comes to diseases such as encephalitis and Zika virus. They can also cause heartworm disease in your family dogs. They are attracted to host animals by moisture, lactic acid, body heat and movement.
In North Carolina, the most common species include Asian tiger and house mosquitoes.
Severe storms or a particularly wet season can contribute to a larger than usual mosquito population as breeding environments are optimal. Most active during twilight hours and at night, they gravitate to ponds and small ditches – any cavity that contains stagnant water.
