Mosquito Control in SE Michigan
Mosquitoes are a serious concern as temperatures rise during the late summer months, making mosquito control a top priority. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), since West Nile Virus was first identified in New York in 1999, at least 60 species have been identified to carry the disease. More than 80 cases and 10 deaths were reported in Michigan in 2012. West Nile Virus is one of the primary diseases carried and transmitted by mosquitoes in the United States.
Mosquito season can start as early as April and can last all year in warm climates. In most areas, the period of July through September show the most activity from mosquitoes. There are more than 3,000 species of mosquitoes throughout the world, 200 of which exist in North America. Despite their short life span of 10 to 16 days, mosquitoes are notorious for biting between dusk and dawn.
Mosquitoes are one of North America’s most dangerous pests. Some species transmit West Nile and other viruses that cause encephalitis, swelling of the brain, and illnesses resulting in seasonal epidemics in the summer and fall of North America. Symptoms of the virus can include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, muscle weakness, disorientation, and paralysis. They pose a danger internationally where they can carry and transmit the agents that cause malaria, lymphatic filariasis, yellow fever, and dengue fever.
