What are Mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes are small insects that cause sharp bites and can be quite harmful to people. When a female mosquito pierces human skin to suck its blood, a small red spot is formed known as a mosquito bite. Mosquitoes usually bite more than one host and are liable to spread extremely dangerous infections such as Lyme disease, malaria, bird flu, and West Nile or Zika virus. And for people who are allergic to mosquitoes, a bite is a serious matter.
Physically mosquitoes are small midge like flies. In Canada, mosquito season typically starts during May and disintegrates by late August. Typically, mosquito larvae develop between April and May. You will notice the most mosquitoes in June.
Where are mosquitoes found?
Mosquitoes are most often found in damp moist areas. Most mosquitoes like living near people and animals, however, some others prefer forests, marshes, or tall grasses. All mosquitoes like water since mosquito lays egg near water and their larvae and pupae live in the water. It can be noticed that different types of water bodies attract different types of mosquitoes.
Some mosquitoes lay eggs near the edges of lakes and ponds, in swamps and marshes, or in containers that hold water. Other kinds of mosquitoes lay their eggs in moist soil or in containers above the waterline. The eggs dry out, then hatch when rain floods the soil or container.
Why are mosquitoes dangerous?
The most common impact is mosquito bites which can cause skin irritation through an allergic reaction to the mosquito's saliva. This is what causes the red bump and itching.
Mosquito bites can be injurious when people develop swelling around mosquito bites. Besides scratching can leave scarring on the body. Besides, a mosquito bite can cause a reoccurring rash.
However, the worst side of these bites are the transmission of harmful diseases like malaria, chikungunya, zika virus, dengue virus, West Nile virus etc. which can lead to disabling and potentially deadly effects.
Along with humans some mosquitoes spread and transmit diseases and parasites that dogs and horses are very susceptible to. These include dog heartworms, eastern equine encephalitis, and West Nile virus.
Signs of Mosquito Infestation
Warm and humid weather is the best atmosphere for mosquito breeding. These are signs to look out for in the summer to check if you have mosquito infestation:
- Mosquito eggs grow and hatch in water. Some areas in your home where mosquitoes can be laying are dog bowls, toys that hold water, or even puddled areas. So, it’s very important that you keep these areas clean and free of standing water.
- If you notice a lot of mosquitoes invading your backyard and homes it’s quite evident that you might have an infestation. Other signs may include increasing mosquito bites.
- Mosquitoes being cold-blooded prefer warm and humid places. So living in a hot and humid area likelihood of having a mosquito problem is much greater.
