Mosquitoes are easily labeled as a nuisance pest to Durham residents. Not only are they annoying, but they are among the most dangerous creatures on earth. The diseases these little bugs spread can cause millions of deaths annually. The most well known of these being malaria is a greater threat in other parts of the world, there are still other pathogens to keep in mind that mosquitoes can carry. With Scott’s Turf and Pest Services, the pest control experts, here is a quick look at everything you need to know about mosquito control in Durham, North Carolina.
Mosquitoes have ideal anatomical and behavioral qualities for transmitting deadly diseases. They pick up various viruses from infected animals and can transmit disease to a human with just one bite. While malaria was eliminated from the United States in the 50s, West Nile Virus, Chikungunya Virus, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) are all carried by mosquitoes in US territory. In Durham, North Carolina, Chikungunya and EEE are the risks you need to watch for.
