Almost everyone has had the unfortunate experience of being bit by a mosquito! According to the World Health Organization, mosquitoes infect over 300 million people worldwide with Malaria and Dengue. Mosquitoes can cause sickness and even death through the diseases they carry. Mosquito bites cause skin irritation through an allergic reaction to the mosquito’s saliva – that is why a red bump appears on the skin’s surface. There are over 200 different species of mosquitoes in the United States that have unique behaviors, bite different animals, and live in specific habitats. Although different species behave uniquely, all mosquitoes share the same four-stage life-cycle: egg, larva, pupa, and adult.
Mosquitoes carry numerous diseases that can be harmful, and even fatal to humans. Some of the most common diseases are Malaria, Dengue, Yellow Fever, and Zika. Mosquitoes carry the parasites that are present in these diseases, and when bit, they can transfer the disease over to you. Mosquitoes are unquestionably annoying to deal with and like to breed in standing water, so try to clean up all areas around your house where standing water is present.
