Certain types of insects and animals on this planet can make our lives a living hell. Mosquitoes and ticks are just two of them.
Over one million people are killed by mosquito-borne diseases every year worldwide. The United States tends to be less aware of how deadly mosquitoes are, but over 1,000 Americans experience severe illness or death because of a mosquito bite every year.
The diseases they can bring are devastating:
West Nile Virus (WNV): First found in Uganda in 1937, WNV has spread globally. Its flulike symptoms include fever, headache, and body aches. More severe symptoms include disorientation, muscle weakness, neck stiffness, and more.
Encephalitis (EEE): This is the inflammation of the brain that starts as a virus and can invade the central nervous system. Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) is the most common Encephalitis and can affect both humans and horses.
Zika Virus: This virus is an emerging disease with symptoms that include fever, skin rash, and conjunctivitis that typically last less than a week. A connection between Zika and birth defects is currently under investigation.
Heartworm: This parasitic roundworm infects dogs and other animals. The heartworm takes residence in the host's heart as it grows. It is a significant concern in canines.
Malaria: Eradicated in the U.S. in the 1940s, Malaria continues to kill millions in Africa each year. Malaria is both preventable and treatable. To help fight the spread of Malaria, Mosquito Squad is a proud supporter of Malaria No More, a nonprofit that envisions a world where no one dies from a mosquito bite.
Chikungunya: This mosquito-borne disease causes fever, joint pain, headache, rash, and swelling. There is currently no vaccine for chikungunya.
Yellow Fever: This disease is found primarily in tropical regions in Africa and South America that is spread through the bite of an infected mosquito. The "yellow" refers to jaundice, which is a common symptom.
As for ticks, who may be infected with bacteria, viruses, or parasites, Alton tick control will help prevent these awful diseases from impacting your family at home:
Powassan Virus Disease
Borrelia Miyamotoi Disease
Borrelia Mayonii Disease
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
