Health Hazards From Mosquitoes

Allergic Reactions
The redness, swelling, and itching you experience from a mosquito bite is an allergic reaction. However, some individuals have more severe reactions to these bites, such as hives, swelling around the eyes or lips, difficulty breathing, drop in blood pressure, and swelling of the throat.
The West Nile virus can infect humans and horses and cause neurological disease and even death in them. Mosquitoes get this from infected birds and transmit it to humans through their bites. West Nile virus is a significant concern in the Northern Mississippi and Greater Memphis area with some human infections and deaths recorded in recent years.

Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain. One of the notable ways humans and animals can get it is through viruses transmitted through mosquito bites. These viruses are Eastern Equine Encephalitis and the St. Louis Encephalitis.

The Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus can infect humans and horses. It is a serious condition with no vaccines for prevention and a 30% rate of fatality for humans.

The St. Louis Encephalitis virus (SLEV) does not typically have symptoms other than inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. It can cause severe neurological damage, which may lead to long-term disability and death.

Dengue is a viral infection transmitted by the Aedes mosquito species. Although the virus is more common in tropical and subtropical regions, some parts of the United States, like the Greater Memphis and Northern Mississippi areas, fall within the region where it occurs.

Chikungunya is a disease transmitted to humans by mosquitoes in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. It causes fever, debilitating joint pain, joint swelling, muscle pain, headache, fatigue, and rashes.

Most cases of the disease in the United States are acquired by traveling to countries with a high incidence of it. Uninfected mosquitoes can become infected after biting a patient and transmit it to others through their bites.

Zika virus is transmitted primarily through infected mosquitoes. Its common symptoms include fever, joint pain, reddening of the eyes, and rashes. It can cause complications in developing fetuses and lead to Guillain-Barre syndrome, a neurological disorder.

The United States had a local transmission in Florida and Texas from 2016 to 2017. With mosquito infestations, it only takes one infected individual and a mosquito bite before the virus starts spreading to others.

Heartworms are foot-long parasite worms that reside in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels of infected animals. Cats, dogs, and ferrets get it when an infected mosquito bites them and transmits microscopic worms. These tiny worms eventually grow and multiply, causing lasting and, sometimes, fatal damage to the heart, lungs, and arteries.

Why Choose IPM for

Effective Mosquito Control

Integrated pest control combines various strategies, including habitat modification, biological control, and targeted pesticide application. This multi-pronged approach ensures more effective control of mosquito populations at all stages of their life cycle compared to relying solely on one method that usually only targets a single stage.

Customized Approach

The most effective pest control for you is the one tailored to the specific conditions and needs of your property. Integrated pest management allows for this customization and ensures optimal results for mosquito control in diverse settings.

Long-Term and Sustainable Results

Integrated pest management addresses the root causes of mosquito infestations. This allows for a long-lasting result instead of relying on temporary fixes that need to be done repeatedly in the short term.

Safe and Environmentally Friendly

The use of chemicals for controlling and exterminating mosquitoes is just one part of integrated pest management. This allows for the use of techniques and products that are least harmful to people, non-target organisms, and the environment.

Cost-Effective Solution

The initial implementation of IPM is a great investment for your property. By preventing recurring infestations and reducing the necessity for repeated pesticide applications, you will not need frequent pest control services, allowing you to save money in the long term.
