Mosquito, Ticks and Disease In the Alpharetta Area
Bugs and diseases go hand in hand. What may seem like a pesky nuisance could actually be an imminent threat to your health and your family. At Mosquito Squad of the Greater Atlanta Area, we are committed to keeping your entire household protected from disease-carrying mosquitoes and ticks. With the help of our advanced mosquito control solutions, you will never have to worry about getting sick from a simple bug bite.
Diseases from Mosquitoes
Because mosquitoes feed on blood, they carry a number of blood-based diseases, such as West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, Encephalitis, and Malaria. Families in the U.S. are not as exposed to these dangers as families in other parts of the world, but over one million people globally are killed every year by mosquito-borne diseases. More than 1,000 Americans each year face serious illness as a result of a mosquito bite.
With proper mosquito control early on, you can protect your family from these health threats and enjoy your outdoor experiences once again. Call (770) 504-4494 today to schedule a treatment for your home in Alpharetta, Roswell or Marietta.
Diseases from Ticks
Tick-borne diseases affect far more people in America tan mosquito-borne diseases, yet they are rarely talked about. Tens of thousands of Americans face illness as a result of a tick bite every year. The most common conditions include Lyme disease, Erlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, but there are other diseases you may contract when in contact with a tick. The sooner you seek treatment, the less you will have to worry about these dangerous conditions.
Mosquitoes and Ticks Put Your Pets at Risk
Don’t forget about the furry members of your family! They may be even more susceptible to mosquitoes and ticks than you are. For instance, many animals contract heartworms because of mosquito bites, especially here in the Deep South. Heartworms are treatable if you catch them early on, but if your pet suffers too long unnoticed, he could die from a simple – and preventable – mosquito bite.
Many of the mosquito control solutions we offer also treat fleas, so your pets will be completely safe playing in your yard. Get the peace of mind you deserve and the protection your pet needs at the same time.
