How Mosquitoes Contribute To The Ecosystem In Chandler
Nothing ruins an outdoor event quite like mosquitoes do. While it may seem like a great idea to just get rid of mosquitoes entirely, that’s unfortunately not a good idea. Believe it or not, but mosquitoes play a larger role in our ecosystem’s balance than we’d like to admit, and decimating their populations would have ripple effects on other species.
Mosquitoes are a nutritious meal option for many different types of fish and birds. If we were to get rid of mosquitoes everywhere, we would see a dramatic decrease in the populations of other important species.
In addition, while bumblebees are most people’s favorite type of pollinating insect, mosquitoes are important to this process as well, as male mosquitoes exclusively eat nectar.
So while it may not be a good idea to cause a mass mosquito extinction, it is still important to repel them from your yard, especially here in Chandler.
Why Mosquitoes Around Your Chandler Home Are A Big Problem
Aside from being obnoxious and causing itchy bumps on your arms and legs, mosquitoes can be rather dangerous to have on your property. It is important to keep mosquitoes away because not only do some people develop allergic reactions to their bites, but many mosquitoes are capable of spreading harmful diseases to you and your family. The professionals at Green Home Pest Control have the advanced tools needed to spray your yard and effectively keep mosquitoes away from your home, including those carrying diseases.
The Diseases Mosquitoes Can Transmit To Chandler Residents
Diseases spread by mosquitoes tend to be chronic, and some are deadly without medical intervention. Here in Chandler, mosquitoes could be a vector of any mosquito-borne illness.
Below are some of the common diseases spread by mosquitoes:
Malaria : Perhaps the most well-known mosquito-borne illness, malaria symptoms include fever and other flu-like symptoms. This disease is unique in that if you do not seek proper medical treatment, the symptoms can persist for years (kind of like tick-borne illnesses).
Chikungunya virus : This disease is similar to Lyme disease. The symptoms of this virus include fever and joint pain. Even with treatment, symptoms can persist for months.
Dengue virus : The dengue virus is the most severe of all the illnesses spread by these pests. This virus can be fatal within hours of contracting it without medical treatment immediately. Symptoms include fever, aches and pains, and a rash.
West Nile virus: Another common virus spread by mosquitoes is the West Nile virus. Symptoms include fever, headaches, body aches, joint pain, vomiting, diarrhea, or a rash. Even after treatment, the fatigue and weakness can continue for months.
