Why Control Mosquitoes?

It’s widely known that some species of mosquitoes can spread diseases when biting humans. Many of these diseases (like West Nile, Dengue, Zika, and Malaria, among others) can spread quite quickly and be very harmful or have posterior consequences in some populations that are unprepared to fight these viruses and/or parasites. On the other hand, there are “harmless” mosquitoes that are considered just a “nuisance” since they don’t spread any disease, even when biting a person. In other words, mosquitoes that don’t spread diseases are just annoying and must be controlled.

In the United States only, there are nearly 200 kinds of mosquitoes, and only 12 species spread germs. Anyway, it’s a risk and should be treated as such.

So, by controlling the population of mosquitoes in your area, you are reducing the possibility of having a disease or an inconvenient plague.
