While summer can be a warm and relaxing time of year, it also brings summertime bugs. Mosquitoes can be a nuisance, especially while you are enjoying a barbeque with the family or are tanning at the cottage. Mosquitoes are known for their excessive buzzing, but this is not the only thing that makes them irritating during outdoor summer play. Mosquitoes bite, suck your blood, and leave itchy bumps in their path.
Mosquitoes fly around biting person after person, exposing themselves to illness and transmitting it to their next victim. This is what makes mosquitos so dangerous. Diseases like Lyme disease, bird flu, West Nile virus, Zika Virus and Malaria can be passed on from mosquitoes to their victims. At ICE Pest, we understand this risk and will assist you in protecting your properties from mosquitoes.
The Dangers of Mosquitoes in Toronto
Mosquitoes tend to migrate to areas with stagnant water to lay their eggs and breed. To prevent this from happening, it is important to get rid of all stagnant water on your property. You also want to be sure to keep your lawn and landscape trimmed to reduce breeding opportunities.
West Nile virus is the most dangerous of all the possible diseases a person can contract from a mosquito bite. This disease creates swelling of the brain, resulting in extreme headaches, weakness, confusion, high fever, compromised immune systems, and even death. There is no cure for West Nile virus. Even with treatment, however; the symptoms can last as long as 90 days.
This year Quebec and Ontario experienced a late spring, which caused an overlap between the appearance of both spring and summertime mosquitoes. As a result, these regions are not experiencing any relief. Mosquitoes have been present all season long and aren’t expected to die off any time soon.
Provinces in Atlantic Canada, including Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Labrador, and Newfoundland, have experienced spring weather for much longer, and with it, an influx of mosquitoes. Western Canada also suffers from an extreme infestation of mosquitoes because region has an abundance of stagnant water.
