Of all household pests, mosquitoes are by far the most annoying ones. They feed on the blood of live vertebrates, mostly human beings. Apart from the irritating itch and bumps that they cause on the skin, these mosquitoes can carry a number of extremely dangerous diseases that are, and often have been, fatal to many. The American Mosquito Control Association has estimated that at least a million deaths are caused each year, just by mosquitoes. A range of diseases like malaria, dengue, West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, and yellow fever are transmitted by mosquitoes.
The United States alone has about 170 species of mosquitoes. That is truly a lot of mosquitoes. All of these are perfectly capable of infecting you with a variety of diseases that can be moderately to extremely harmful.
Stagnating water is the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes, and the littlest amount of it is enough. You may not even realize it, but there may be mosquitoes breeding in your backyard right at this moment, putting your entire family at risk. Here is one pesky situation you absolutely cannot take any chances with. It is therefore best to seek the services of an exterminator such as Mosquito Squad, the professional mosquito control services that can be relied on.
Mosquitoes lay eggs on stagnant water. Larvae emerge from the hatching eggs and turn into pupae. Soon enough, each pupa turns into a full-fledged mosquito capable of laying about a billion eggs in under a month. So the equation is clear. If stagnant water was taken out of it, there would be no breeding ground for mosquitoes and you would have much less to worry about. However, you may not always know where mosquitoes have found their breeding ground. Often, it could be too late before you find out.
