With mosquito season approaching, your thoughts are leaning towards how you can protect your property from mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases by creating a safe and comfortable environment for you, your customers or residents.
Zika in the Maryland Area
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourage protecting against mosquitoes especially for women who are or may become pregnant. Mosquito-borne diseases include Chikungunya, Dengue, West Nile and the Zika virus. Recent studies have shown that repellents, such as citronella candles and battery powered diffusers, are ineffective at keeping mosquitoes away. Did you know that it is estimated over one million people die from mosquito-borne illness? As of March 2017, there are already reports of Zika cases in the Maryland area so do not delay in protecting your property.
There are a number of things that can attract mosquitoes, including genetics. However, being pregnant, working out, having type O blood or even drinking beer can make someone a target. There are effective ways to do your part to protect the people that frequent your property.
Protecting Our Pollinators
As you may or may not know, traditional mosquito treatments do not target a specific controlled area. Instead, they generally blanket an area with the goal of killing mosquitoes. This process not only kills the pesky little blood suckers, it also terminates our friendly pollinators. Mosquitoes can become resistant to insecticides, making it even more difficult to get rid of them. Some pesticides have also been linked to disrupting your hormone system, causing neurological and developmental issues and other health problems.
