The Dangers of Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes were discovered to be the deadliest animal on the planet. Over one million people are killed by mosquito-borne diseases every year around the world. In the U.S. alone, there are over 1,000 people each year who experience serious illnesses or death because of a mosquito bite. Mosquitoes feed on nectar, plant juices and decaying plant material, but only female mosquitoes bite. This is because female mosquitoes need one blood meal for every batch of eggs she produces. Common mosquito-borne diseases include West Nile Virus, Heartworm, Malaria, Zika Virus, Encephalitis, and Chikungunya.
The Dangers of Ticks
Similar to mosquitoes, ticks are vectors of diseases. Tick-borne diseases affect over tens of thousands of Americans every year. Ticks don’t just grab a blood mean and go on their way, instead they feed off their hosts for hours, days, or even weeks with their beak-like projections. Ticks often go undetected because they do not hurt or itch. The most common tick-borne disease is Lyme disease and Ehrlichiosis. Lyme disease isn’t easy to diagnose—the only noticeable symptoms is the telltale bull’s eye rash. Ehrlichiosis is a bacteria that kills white blood cells, and is most commonly found in deer and dogs.
