Mosquito Mosquitos

In another section, we reviewed the problems associated with bees. There are other flying insects that can cause problems in and around the home, garden, office, farm, and other places where people gather. Warm weather can especially bring problems with stinging bugs like wasps and hornets.

These stinging pests enjoy making their nests around where we are, often inside attics, between windows and screens, and under gutters, decks, and eaves. It is important to seal cracks and crevices to keep them from traveling indoors. Anyone who has tried to do battle with a stubborn wasp or hornet will recognize there are particular behaviors that can make getting rid of it a little tough:

  • Wasps, yellow jackets, and hornet problems tend to be seasonal, with nests that can attach to trees and buildings. Humans tend to see these bees as unwelcome visitors at picnics and outdoor events. Some large, invasive nests require removal, while others may not, and there are different types of pesticides that are effective and may be limited to use in certain areas and states.
  • Stinging pests may pose a threat to humans and pets because their stingers and venom can cause an allergic reaction in some individuals. The reaction can be very serious and can even lead to death, which is why is it better to call on an expert to get rid of the problem.
  • A Mosquito, in particular, have been shown to be the main carriers of serious illnesses—such as the West Nile virus and malaria. West Nile can affect approximately 20 percent of people with a fever, headache, body aches, pains, and fatigue. One percent of those who get sick can develop an even more serious form of the illness.
  • The Mosquito are known to carry both West Nile and malaria can be found across the country, and have been known to infect, and re-infect, locations that have these illnesses under control. Prolonged exposure to insecticides over several mosquito generations lowers chemical effectiveness.
