Fight Zika With Mosquito Control

During the warmer months, especially this year due to a higher amount of rainfall, your local mosquito control provider is your best friend.  Pest control businesses in Florida have seen an increasing rise in the requirement  for protection and rightly so. These suckers can be deadly and with Zika being a scare factor last year, especially in Florida people are right to be concerned! So if you’re not up to date with your own mosquito control at home, whichever part of the United States you reside in, now is the time to take action.

Mosquitoes are back in a bad way; your Mosquito Control can help you battle the blood-suckers

Make sure your property’s gates and fences are unlocked as Mosquito Control workers need access to your entire yard. They cannot get rid of the insects if they cannot reach them. Your local Mosquito Control can help, but only if you provide, via phone or online, with specific information about the insect infestation on your property.

Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance, they are a threat to our health. Last year, the Zika virus caused health officials to issue high alert warnings, particularly to pregnant women who may have been to an infected area. The threat still remains in 2017.

Another outbreak is anticipated, so we need to be prepared. We need to know how we can protect ourselves and also how this virus can be transmitted. It’s not just from a bite of an infected mosquito, it can also spread via sexual intercourse with someone already infected with the disease.

Zika Can Be Passed Through Sex

Many people infected with Zika virus won’t have symptoms or will only have mild symptoms, and they may not know they have been infected. Zika can also be passed from a person before their symptoms start, while they have symptoms, and after their symptoms end.

Become familiar with Zika and know how to protect yourself, your existing family and even more so any future family you may have should you be pregnant.  Let’s fight against this disease together!
