The Role Mosquitoes Play In Our Environment

It is easy to assume that mosquitoes are only bad insects. The truth is that all mosquitoes are beneficial, and only half of these pests bite in the first place. It is only females that have the ability to draw blood from humans and animals. They need blood in order to provide nutrients to their eggs. Both male and female mosquitoes live on a diet of nectar. Like bees and wasps, they go from flower to flower and help pollinate plants. They are not, however, as effective at this job as honey bees and other similar stinging insects. Mosquitoes are also dangerous, and you should avoid them as much as possible.

Why Mosquitoes Are Considered So Dangerous

Do you know why people in third-world countries fear mosquitoes? These small biting insects are vectors for blood-borne diseases like malaria and dengue fever. Most third-world countries have minimal access to health care services to treat these harmful sicknesses. Although we do have the medical care to combat these illnesses in America, mosquitoes are still a threat, and getting sick is no fun. We recommend doing everything in your power to avoid different types of mosquitoes and their potentially harmful bites. One great way to do this is with prevention tips.

Five Simple Yet Effective Mosquito Prevention Tips

If you cannot stand the thought of being bitten by mosquitoes, you need to put in place some form of DIY or professional mosquito control. To start, here are five simple yet effective methods to try today.

  1. Eliminate sources of water buildup after it rains and minimize opportunities for water to build up in the future.
  2. Make sure your gutters are in good working condition and have them cleaned yearly.
  3. Change out the water in bird baths and ornate pools at least once every four days.
  4. Stock large bodies of water like ponds with mosquito fish.
  5. Install fans around covered outdoor lounging areas.
