The spring and summer seasons bring on many fun things including more time outside and lots of activities like swimming, camping and outdoor barbecues. Unfortunately, this is also the time of year that many types of flying bugs start their adventures in nature as well. This can make your fun outdoor time a lot less fun. One of the pests that cause a lot of trouble in the spring and summer seasons are pesky mosquitoes. This is the time of year they swarm around areas that have water and moisture; but that is not all they are attracted to. Other things that entice mosquitoes are light, heat from your body and carbon dioxide.
Blood Sucking Mosquitoes
During the spring and summer mosquitoes are out in abundance and it is well known that they love to bite people and drink their blood which can unfortunately spread dangerous and even fatal diseases. The mosquito has a biting apparatus on their head that allows them to bite a host and ingest the blood. They have anticoagulants in their saliva which allows the mosquito to drink without your body clotting. An interesting fact is that only female mosquitoes actually bite and the males will innocently feed on nectar from flowers.
Disease Carrying Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes have been around for a long time and have been known to also carry many dangerous diseases. They are mostly know for carrying West Nile Virus and more recently Chikungunya, but they also carry other diseases such as Malaria, Yellow Fever, Encephalitis and Dengue Fever. These diseases can be anything from a parasite that grows in your blood stream to a virus that can cause high fever, joint pain, confusion, paralysis and even death.
